Taylor family reunion

Dawn Gibson
Tuesday, January 14, 2014

DESCENDANTS of the Taylor family in Fiji met for the first part of their first family reunion yesterday at Suva's Kshatriya Hall.

The gathering was attended by six generations of Taylors from different parts of the world.

Descendants came in from England, New Zealand, Australia and even as far as Ethiopia to be part of the celebrations which are set to continue throughout this week.

One of the event's organisers, Tamsy Simpson-Griffen, said the family had worked tirelessly since 2011 to get in touch with different generations within their family in order to host the reunion.

"We had a small kind of reunion in August last year, but that was just to get things rolling because we wanted to have a really big one like this one. So it was great to see everyone meeting each other," Mrs Simpson-Griffen said yesterday.

"Hopefully, we're able to make this something that happens more often now because I feel very strongly about family and the importance of knowing where you're from and your roots."

The family members not doing anything today but will host a Taylors Got Talent theme night at the Civic Centre tomorrow evening.

They will also attend a family fun day on Friday at Gospel High School followed by a closing dinner and dance on Saturday evening at the Novotel in Lami.
