The of­fi­cial Water­son’s 90th birthday cel­e­bra­tions were held at their su­per store last Fri­day.

Speeches were made by Graeme Water­son, who pro­vided some in­for­ma­tion about the back­ground of Water­son’s, and manag­ing di­rec­tor Brett Wat­son, who spoke about the fu­ture of Water­son’s Fur­ni­ture and Car­pet Court. Fay Water­son pre­sented staff with gift ham­pers for all their hard work. There was also an in­store dis­play of old ledgers, tools, pho­tos and bed­room fur­ni­ture.

The crowd was en­ter­tained by Mata­mata Brass mem­ber Jes­sica Schweizer, who played the flugel­horn.

The 90th birthday cake was made by Diane Nor­ris and cut by 100-years-young Eileen Han­d­ley.
