A COUPLE from Ashwell have received a card from The Queen on their diamond wedding anniversary.
Raymond and Angela Munday, of High Street, celebrated 60 years of marriage with a family party and a blessing at Ashwell Church.
They met in London after Raymond was posted to Royal Woolwich Arsenal, and started dating in 1941 before marrying in Elton, Kent, at the end of the Second World War.
Raymond, 85, said: "We have had a happy marriage. I would definitely recommend it."

Angela, 84, was a housewife and brought up their three children, Catherine, Rosemary, and David, who is now a professor at King's College, Cambridge.
In 1980 they moved to Ashwell from Somerset so that Raymond could work at space division at BAe in Stevenage, which dealt with communication satellites.
Raymond's work took him around the world and as a result he and Angela are well-travelled and have spent a lot of time in America.
