A Royston couple are overjoyed to be celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary.

Wyn and Ken Blows met at a dance at Royston Town Hall back in 1952 when Wyn was 17 and Ken was 22.

After meeting Wyn, Ken was so infatuated he would cycle the half an hour ride from Royston to her home in Abington Pigotts to visit her.

Wyn, 79, said: “It’s lovely to be celebrating this anniversary.

“I didn’t think we’d ever make 60 years, but we did.
