An octogenarian couple are this week celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary after meeting in St Albans more than 60 years ago.
Tony McCarthy, 81, and his wife Sheila, 80, who have lived in Cell Barnes Lane for 55 years, met at a dance in Victoria Street and “just clicked” said Sheila.
On Tuesday, the couple celebrated their 60th anniversary with more than a few surprises, including a card from the Queen.
Sheila added: “We’ve had so many beautiful gifts. We had a terrific surprise when we got the card and our two sons have been fabulous and organised so many things.
“We have been made a beautiful cake with our two figures on the top of what we were wearing on the day, and have been given so many flowers.”
