Just days after John and Fran Pritchett celebrated being re-elected to Willingdon and Jevington Parish Council, they marked an even bigger achievement – their Golden Wedding anniversary.

They celebrated the big day, May 15, with a party at Willingdon Community School.

Family and friends – including their best man and four bridesmaids – attended from as far afield as Australia and Canada.

The couple met in 1962 at what was Willingdon Youth Club.

They have two children and three grandchildren and say they are as ‘happy as the day we met’.

They added, “A great night was had by all and we would like to thank all those who helped make the whole anniversary weekend a wonderful occasion.”
