WHAT started out as young love for Peter and Jill Bash­ford has evolved into 60 years of mar­riage. Grow­ing up in the United King­dom, the pair met and fell in love at a young age and soon mar­ried on Septem­ber 6, 1958, just two days be­fore Peter’s 21st birth­day and three months be­fore Jill’s. The cou­ple im­mi­grated to Aus­tralia in 1970 and de­cided to call Thorn­lie home, tak­ing on ca­reers as a teacher’s as­sis­tant at South Thorn­lie Pri­mary School and boat builder and rais­ing their two daugh­ters and one son.

Now both in their 80s, Peter and Jill Bash­ford con­tinue to live to­gether at Ar­ca­dia Wa­ters, Madding­ton, shar­ing the love with their grow­ing fam­ily which now has seven grand­chil­dren and two great-grand­chil­dren.
