On Sunday the 9th September our neighbour, Mick Winch hosted a surprise 90th birthday celebration for his father, Peter Winch. My husband and I were thrilled to be included to witness the surprise and joy of Peter as he embraced his family members who had travelled from far a field to recognise this important milestone. Among the guests were Peter’s daughter who had travelled from Bali for the party and his cousin from the Gold Coast. I couldn’t help but shed a tear as I saw the genuine emotion of a family reunited. It was the perfect afternoon with the sun shining brightly so that everyone could enjoy the festivities.
