AUSTRALIA DAY 2021 IN NORTHERN TASMANIA:
Ms Harrison received her award from the Crown Princesses sister Jane Stephens who was the Australia Day ambassador for the Northern Midlands awards.
"I feel very privileged, I feel very humbled to have been asked [to present the awards]," Mrs Stephens said.
"I haven't been to the Northern Midlands - I haven't actually been to Avoca but it was fantastic to see such a wonderful turn out for an event.
"Being able to give the Volunteer Recognition Awards and the Citizen of the Year Awards, which were all volunteers, just showed how important the people to the community."
Mrs Stephens said it was nice to know the crown rose was still growing at Woolmers.
"When my sister the Crown Princess was married they developed the Crown Princess Mary rose which has been planted up there as part of the newer exhibition of roses," she said.
"Unfortunately mine were eaten by the local wildlife but it is nice to know that the [rose] is still around."
