Celebrating a diamond of a marriage

DIAMOND couple Joan and David Childs are looking forward to celebrating sixty happy years together.

The couple, who live in Ebor House, met and married in their home town of Leicester on February 12, 1951, and spent their working lives there before retiring to Bridlington 15 years ago.

Joan, 79, worked as a volunteer in the hospital library and David, 80, is a keen gardener.

Both enjoy travelling abroad and celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in Spain, but unfortunately Joan is currently in poor health so the couple’s diamond anniversary plans are on hold.

Joan and David have three daughters, three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
