Celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary

Robert Barry Moulds and Patricia (Putland) Moulds of Umina are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary on September 10.

After marrying in 1960 at St Stephen's Church, Mittagong, the couple moved in with Mr Moulds' parents in Concord, Sydney, where they had their son Grahame.

In 1963, the couple decided they needed a bigger home for their growing family, and moved to Umina, where their daughter Karen was born a few years later.

"When we visited Barry's sister who was living in Umina Beach, we realised how much we loved the town," Mrs Moulds said.

"So, on the same day, we went down to the real estate agency and put our name down for a house."

Mrs Moulds said the town in the 1960s was peaceful, with no traffic and hardly any houses on their street.

There were only a few corner shops, and Ocean Beach Rd was just a dirt road.

Mr Moulds spent most of his working years at insurance provider GIO in Sydney, where he was up at 6am every morning to catch a train from Woy Woy station and was back home by 6pm.

Mrs Moulds raised the children at home and worked part-time at the GIO office in Gosford.

She was also involved in the P and C at Woy Woy South Public School.

A change of lifestyle came along in the 1980s when the couple bought the local milk run.

From midnight to 8am, Mr and Mrs Moulds delivered milk throughout the Peninsula including Woy Woy and the Phegans Bay area.

After 10 years, the couple sold the milk run and travelled around Australia in search of a new town to settle in.

"We went around Australia for a year to see where we wanted to live next," Mrs Moulds said.

"When we came back over the Pt Clare bridge and saw the view we realised there was no better place than here."

Now retired, they have five grandchildren and will be celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary at a barbecue with family and friends.

Mrs Moulds wasn't sure of any tips, tricks or secrets when it comes to 60 years of marriage, but there was one thing she knew for sure.

"All I do know is that we just belong together," she said.
