Golden couple Sandra and Jeffery Niblett recently celebrated in true golden style their 50th ‘Golden Wedding Anniversary’. So to mark this milestone and very special day in their marriage a celebration with their family and friends was certainly the order of the day.
Long-term residents of Seachange Arundel Sandra and Jeffery both agreed that the obvious choice of venue, for a celebration of this magnitude with 130 guests, was the Seachange Country Club. Little did they realise that the Country Club came with a team of volunteer residents who tirelessly volunteer their help at group functions, before during and after the event.
Guests travelled far and wide from Wollongong, Sydney, Adelaide, Sunshine Coast and Brisbane to help this special couple celebrate their golden wedding anniversary and all thoroughly enjoyed the festivities and were amazed at the community support shown and the definite care provided to everyone to enable the night to be such a success on all accounts.
Guests, as well as Jeffery and Sandra were most impressed with the volunteer bar staff Bob and John for making each guest feel so important and special and nothing was too much trouble for the pair – they truly were an integral part in the success of the night along with Glenn Shields entertaining all throughout the night.
The story of this celebration is not so much the celebration itself but the way and mannerism in which the Seachange Arundel community made Sandra and Jeffery feel so very special. From the use of the venue and under the direction of Brian and Di Dawson who took the stress out of organising such a grand ‘golden’ event to taking care of details ranging from flowers, setting the tables, food preparation and bar service. They were very humbled and for want of a better word ‘gobsmacked’ by the way the Seachange community hosted such a grand golden event, that now holds so many dear memories to the golden couple, Sandra and Jeffery Niblett.
