PUBLISHED: 20:00 19 June 2011
THIS dance-loving couple from Winscombe celebrated 60 years together with a spot of their favourite hobby.
Joan and Alfie Bendall, both 78, celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary on May 12 with a family meal at Banwell Castle, a family gathering at their home in Sidcot Lane and a dance in the evening at Long Ashton.
The pair, who met when Joan worked as an usherette for films being shown at Chew Magna village hall when she was 13, are both keen dancers, having picked up ballroom and sequence dancing about 30 years ago.
