Celebrating your 40th birthday should be a grand affair. That seems to be exactly what the People's National Party Councillor Venesha Phillips was thinking last Saturday for her big bash on the east lawns of Devon House.

Guests were greeted by music that set the tone for a great night as they walked on to the lawns. White sofas and bistro tables draped in red and black provided the perfect backdrop.

They say a queen is never late, everybody is simply early, so the queen of the night arrived very fashionably late, wearing a remarkable piece proving her to be an ageless beauty.

Smiling from ear to ear, Phillips greeted her guests with hugs and kisses, not missing a beat as she stepped with joy and laughed with delight at all who made her night perfect. It was a night devoted to having fun and giving thanks for her life and those who have loved and supported her tirelessly.
