Lismore MP Thomas George’s 60th birthday party held at his farming property at Alphadale on Saturday, January 10, turned into a double celebration.

Guests at the party were informed that two days earlier, on Thursday January 8, Mr George married local schoolteacher Deborah Reid.

The wedding ceremony was conducted at the Bexhill Open Air Cathedral located at Inspiration Point overlooking the Corndale Valley and Nightcap National Park.

Mr George who was elected to Parliament in 1999 is the Nationals Whip in the NSW Legislative Assembly and a Temporary Speaker of the House.

“For Deb and I the timing was perfect,” Mr George said. “Family, friends and colleagues were able to share the celebrations of my birthday and our wedding. It was a great way for us to start the New Year."
