They went on their first date to Dinnington Cinema and were married at Wales Parish Church on Easter Saturday, 1959, a day which saw rain, snow and sunshine.

Speaking about their secret to a long marriage, Brian said: “It is about give and take and being there for one another.”

The couple celebrated the milestone with a meal and party with family and friends.
