Greetings to all,
We are at that time of the year again where people are making plans for
the festive season, summer holidays (in our part of the world) or bracing
for the snow and cold in yours. Wherever we are we take a moment to
reflect on our year and embrace family and friends in celebration with
love and joy.
I have just returned from a wonderful event in Perth where I was able to
take time out of events here at the Principality and revitalise a dear
friendship with Rabbi Dr Shalom Coleman who celebrated his 101st
birthday. It was our privilege to accept his invitation and share in the
various events over the three days.
Rabbi Dr Shalom Coleman has been associated with the Principality since 1973. He and Prince Leonard shared many of the same qualities; determination, inspiration, aspiration and including their scholastic thirst for knowledge. This scholastic knowledge they would share with each other on a very respectful and thoughtful level.
This visit was the first time that I had met the Rabbi face to face, as we
had only corresponded through emails and letters previously. I was met very
warmly and enthusiastically, where I was introduced to his many friends and
family. They all welcomed me with open arms full of respect, love and
Rabbi Dr Shalom Coleman launched his book, “Biography of a Centenarian”, which is full of people and events from his 101 years. In the book Prince Leonard and the Principality are given a wonderful account of their relationship. In this book Rabbi Dr Coleman shares his life story, an account most interesting to read.
It was a most uplifting time and full of all the qualities that we aspire to; warmth, interest, respect and love for one another.
As I reflect on our year I see that the sad moments are being replaced with happy ones. Prince Leonard’s passing was sad but his legacy that he has left us all is an inspiration. As we aspire to our goals in life let us take this moment to embrace our friends and family with Love and Respect.
I wish you all Joy, Grace, Happiness and Love as you go about this festive season and remain safe in your travels.

Greetings to all,
What an interesting start to our 49th
year, with the passing of our founding Father, His Royal Highness Prince
Leonard, on the 13th February 2019. His 93rd year of living and he certainly
did live it. His Eulogy expressed some of those interests and events that he
encountered along the way.
Our cause is not extinguished with his passing but is reinvigorated to
honour his and Princess Shirley’s legacy for us all.
My Best Wishes

Greetings and Happy New Year to all.
Congratulations to all our New Year’s Honours recipients. All are well deserved. We are delighted each time we make these announcements as so many do such wonderful work to benefit others and their community. It is a privilege to be associated with such fine people. Well done to all.
Many of us take the start of a new year as a time to review the past year and set goals for the new one. Whether it is to be more active, join a club, do some studies, volunteering to help others or get around to painting the kitchen........
Many distractions come before us and it is too easy to lose sight of what we had hoped to achieve. That is ok. That is the reality of life. However, if you haven’t thought about your goal(s) you won’t have a marker of what to get back to. Every time we are led off that path, then when we pause we can see the road that we need to take to get back to it.
The Principality will soon be celebrating its 49th Anniversary with the joy that brings, however it marks a vivid date of our 50th Anniversary fast approaching. Not to wish our time away, we will enjoy the 49th year and all that comes to us. But we will also have to use that time wisely to prepare and plan for the celebrations that will be for our 50th Anniversary.
Along those near 50 years Prince Leonard and Princess Shirley faced many distractions. However, the one driving force has been that sense of PRINCIPLE of JUSTICE; and so they forged ahead with Eagle determination, meeting all challenges with confidence and a smile. So too it is my mantra. Not only to continue the work and foundation set before me, but to guide us into and beyond our 50 Years, looking forward to the day we have harmonious relations with all our neighbours; and politicians see the light that we emit as a beacon of hope for many around the world. Then politicians may see what the people really want and need to ensure that they get it.
I wish you all my best wishes for a happy 2019 and good luck with your
