Colin's 60th and he decided it would be lovely to get together with his cousins and their families, most of whom he hadn't seen for years. So we got son and daughter-in-law, who are top organisers, to find a venue. Col contacted everyone and a big invitation went out.
Over 50 of us gathered at Debenham Community Centre yesterday afternoon for a buffet and birthday cake, lots of chat and looking at old photos. The first time ever that Colin, his brother and sister and all his cousins had been together in one place for photos.
Then of course we had to do our family
Everyone asked Colin what he would like for a present and he decided to ask for some money to buy trees for our new little meadow which will turn into a " Colin's Birthday Wood". A lasting legacy for people to enjoy.
Any volunteers to plant a couple of hundred trees next Autumn?
