Irt Peakhurst Mother's Day Fete

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—I rise to thank IRT at Peakhurst for inviting me out to come and visit their annual Mother's Day Fete recently. I always enjoy visiting IRT at Peakhurst – there is never a shortage of friendly and familiar faces. Held in the Community Hall in Peakhurst, there were several stalls selling everything from gifts, to food, to flowers. All sales went directly to supporting the IRT Peakhurst Friends and Residents Association. Of course, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to pick up a small gift for my wife, Adla. IRT retirement village is such a wonderful place for elderly residents within our community. For over 50 years, the IRT organisation has worked incredibly hard to create a safe and inviting environment, allowing residents to enjoy both an active social life and some much-needed rest and relaxation. I'd like to thank Lyndon Mitchell for inviting me along, as well as everyone else who is a part of the IRT Peakhurst Friends and Residents Association. I look forward to attending next year!
