FAMILY and friends gathered in Butcombe to celebrate a milestone occasion.

Frank, aged 85, and Mary Wear, aged, 83, were given cards and presents on their 60th wedding anniversary.

The pair met 65 years ago through Wrington Young Farmers Club, where they were active members, and were married in 1951 at Christ Church in Redhill.

To celebrate their diamond wedding anniversary a marquee was put up at their Butcombe home and lots of family and friends attended, including their daughter Gillian McDonald and her husband Peter, who travelled all the way from Australia.

Another highlight of the celebration was when the couple received a card from the Queen congratulating them on the momentous occasion.
