Harry and Rita Ward celebrated their Diamond Wedding Anniversary on 2nd April with family and friends at their home in Bridlington.
The couple were both born in Bridlington and attended Moorfield School in Bridlington but did not meet until they were both stationed in Portsmouth while Harry was in the Royal Navy and Rita was in the Women’s Royal Navy Service. The couple married at Christ Church in Bridlington on 2 April 1955. Harry worked locally at Rigg Holdings and Rita worked as a Home Help. The couple attribute their 60 years of married life together down to sharing lots of laughter and patience.
