HUNDREDS of locals attended the Twin Waters birthday party on Sunday to celebrate the community's 20th year.

The Twin Waters Residents Association created the event in conjunction with many local businesses as sponsors.

The party was a huge success, raising money for the Mudjimba SLSC with a raffle, baking and craft stalls, as well as a sausage sizzle.

Novotel Twin Waters business development manager Mercedes Ireland said it was good for the community members to come together and show support for one another

"All the businesses here get together and have a really nice community day,” she said.

"Novotel Twin Waters has sponsored the event for nearly the whole 20 years the residents association has been happening.

"So we come down here every year and put up a stand and give out some complimentary coffees and ice blocks, and some vouchers for the resort.

"It shows that Novotel, which is only just down the road in Twin Waters, is supporting the community.”

Activities included canoeing, face-painting, petting zoo, jumping castle and Mudjimba SLSC lifesaving demonstrations, with stalls from local businesses supporting the event.

Josephine Evans-Fairhurst, 13, went to the party with her family and said she wanted to thank everyone for making Twin Waters a great place to live.

"It's good to see all the people who have contributed,” she said.

Lendlease, the original developer of Twin Waters, and Stockland, which will be developing new areas, both had representatives attending the party and provided information to residents.

The theme was Twin Waters' 20/20 vision, which gave residents an idea of how far the suburb had come in the past 20 years, and the plan for the next two decades.
