Celebrating with the Duigans

Anthony and Helen Duigan  - names synonmous with the Conservancy - celebrated 40 years of marriage on Sunday.  And they did so in good spirits, surrounded by family and friends.

The couple arrived in "country style", bumping along in the same trusty bakkie that a few weeks before had carried Ghandi's grandson into the conservancy.  Perfectly attired as bride and groom, Helen primly clutched an aloe, and Anthony flourished a red radish (leaves and all)  jauntily in his pocket. A cheer and a honk announned their arrival and the grandchildren heartily joined in the noise-making.

Greetings were fondly exchanged as the couple arrived home after being banished to the city for the previous night.  Helen tossed the "bouquet", with only the bravest in the fray anticipating a spiky flying bundle.

The cake was cut for afternoon tea, and a joyful time was had all round.

Wishing Helen and Anthony many more happy years together.
