Diamond Couples Celebrate At Jubilee Party

Couples from across Lancashire who are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversaries this year were invited to a Lancashire Diamond Jubilee celebration held at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) Burnley Campus.

UCLan’s Centre for Volunteering and Community Leadership students organised the party as part of UCLan’s Diamond 60 commemorative events to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Year.

Twelve couples from across the Red Rose county shared their stories with the students on six decades of happy marriage.

Many words of wisdom included having "no secrets", "a good sense of humour" and "having trust in each other".

Another interesting story came from another couple who announced they only got married in March 1952 because they saved money by getting a full year’s tax back.

Dr Alethea Melling MBE, Director of the Centre for Volunteering and Community Leadership, said: "We have 60 student volunteers delivering 60 volunteering projects to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.

"This was a memorable occasion for everybody involved and proved our students hard work and commitment paid off in delivering such a fantastic event."
