WISBECH couple Frank and June Hammond (pictured left) celebrated 60 years of marriage on Thursday.

The couple, who met at a dance in their home town of Bedworth in Warwickshire in 1949, are planning a second honeymoon to Blackpool where they went for their first honeymoon.

They were married at the Baptist Chapel in Bedworth on December 22 1951 and moved to Wisbech about two years later.

June worked as a nurse at local hospitals including the Bowthorpe and Clarkson, while Frank originally worked at Spillers but was with Metalbox when he retired.

The couple have two sons Michael and David, both of Wisbech, three grandchildren, one step granddaughter and two great grandchildren.

They enjoyed caravanning in their younger days, but now enjoy coaching trips.
