Mr Manners, who is Chairperson of the Honour Avenues Group, received the Medal for services to veterans and their families. Mr Manners said the award was really a testament to the whole group's efforts.

BGPA Acting CEO Marcelle Broderick offered her warm congratulations to Mr Manners.

'This is an award that has been well and truly earned and very well deserved', Ms Broderick said.

A committed and long-serving group of volunteers from the RSLWA Highgate Branch, the Honour Avenues Group dedicate and maintain the memorial plaques lining the avenues in Kings Park.

Set against a backdrop of eucalypt trees, each plaque bears details of service personnel who died during war service and were either buried overseas or have no known graves.

There are now more than 1700 plaques lining the Honour Avenues. The plaques have been carefully maintained by the RSL Highgate Honour Avenues Group on behalf of the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority since 1922.
