A Sutton couple are a pair of diamonds after celebrating 65 years of being married.

Olive and Ron Sculthorpe, who met at a local dance, celebrated with family.

Ron worked as a farmer and Olive taught at Sutton Primary school before the pair got married.

They had children Liz, James Angela and Jane.

When asked the secret of a long happy marriage they said: “If we told you it wouldn’t be a secret!” but agreed that marriage is all about learning to give and take.

Mr and Mrs Sculthorpe received a congratulatory card from the Queen.

The couple married in 1950 on July 22 at St Andrew’s Church, Sutton.

The picture shows them holding a photo from their wedding album.

They have four children, eight grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.
