Daughter Dawn Jarvis, who moved opposite her parents in 1998, said: "My mother has lived in Wheathampstead the majority of her life and is now 81. Her mother owned the Three Oaks pub on Nomansland and this is where my dad met her.

"My dad lived in Harpenden before moving to Wheathampstead. He has been a local builder and decorator  for many years and still works today at the age of 83."

The couple has been extensively involved in the local community, with Don running Wheathampstead Cricket Colts and Christine a ranger for the football fields on Old School Drive.

They have three children, two daughters and a son, one grand daughter and three grandsons.
