Point Clare residents, Neville and June Stewart, celebrated 60 years of marriage on February 6.
Member for Gosford, Liesl Tesch, visited the Stewarts to present a certificate and a bottle of champagne to celebrate the milestone.
“Recognising and celebrating marriage anniversaries is one of the pleasures of my job, and to have the opportunity to recognise a long lasting marriage like the Stewart’s is an honour,” Tesch said.
The happy couple told Tesch that they first met on a date at the Royal Easter Show which was arranged by their friends.
The date was a success, with the pair hitting it off and arranging to meet again.
Neville would visit June in Redfern while she was working as a nurse and he as a boilermaker on the South Coast.
The couple married in 1960 and together have four children.
Today the Stewarts preside over a large and growing family of 21 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
