LES­MUR­DIE cou­ple Ser­a­fina and Giuseppe Tad­dei cel­e­brated a mile­stone 50 years to­gether last month.

Ser­a­fina said it was love at first sight when she met the 22year-old Ital­ian mi­grant at a fam­ily dance in Os­borne Park in hon­our of St An­thony in 1966.

Raised by strict Ital­ian par­ents, Ser­a­fina said only a short courtship was al­lowed.

“It was just over a year later that we mar­ried on Septem­ber 30, 1967, at St Kieran’s Par­ish in Os­borne Park,” she said.

“We started a fam­ily right away, with Gina our el­dest daugh­ter born, shortly fol­lowed by Lisa.

“In 1974 we de­cided to re­lo­cate from the Wan­neroo area and make a new fam­ily home for our­selves in the Les­mur­die Hills.”

Here, the cou­ple wel­comed son Paul and youngest daugh­ter Anna to the world.

Ser­a­fina said they worked ex­tremely hard to cre­ate and main­tain their fam­ily busi­ness in stair­cas­ing and wood turn­ing.

“Although we are now both re­tired, the busi­ness con­tin­ues and has been taken over by Paul,” she said.

Giuseppe and Ser­a­fina are grand­par­ents to 10 grand­chil­dren.

They range in age from four to 24.

Ser­a­fina said the cou­ple be­lieved it was not the easy times in marriage but the hard that were a true tes­ti­mony to each other’s love and com­mit­ment.

The cou­ple marked their an­niver­sary with a fam­ily cel­e­bra­tion, along with a week­end get­away and a trip over­seas. Coun­cil at its Or­di­nary Meet­ing held 28 Au­gust 2017 re­solved to adopt the re­vised P-DEV 20 – Out­build­ings and Sea Con­tain­ers Pol­icy for the pur­pose of ad­ver­tis­ing.

The Pol­icy has been re­viewed and re­vised with the pur­pose of pro­vid­ing guid­ance for the com­mu­nity where there is a pro­posal to con­struct an outbuilding or in­cor­po­rate a sea con­tainer on their prop­erty.

Copies of the Plan­ning Pol­icy are avail­able for view­ing at the City of Kala­munda Ad­min­is­tra­tion Cen­tre, 2 Rail­way Road, Kala­munda and on the web­site at www.kala­munda.wa.gov. au/havey­our­say.
