Wisbech couple Reginald and Olive Shepherd tomorrow (October 10) celebrate their diamond wedding anniversary.
Reginald (81) and Olive, who celebrates her 84th birthday in a few days time on October 14, were married at the town’s St Augustine’s Church.
Reginald, who worked on a farm at Guyhirn, is from the village and Olive, who worked at English Brothers, is from Wisbech and they met in the town.
The couple have four children, David, Samuel, Paul and Mandy and five grandchildren. They plan to celebrate their 60th anniversary with a family gathering at the weekend at home.
Olive said the secret of their long marriage is: “We do everything together. We both muck in and help each other.”
