NEW Year's Eve is always a double celebration for Stan and Peg Morris. The couple married on that day 50 years ago.

Stan's sister was friends with Peg and that is how they met. Stan, 75, said: "She was a pretty girl. She was blonde. I used to wolf whistle at her."

Back then they both lived in Harrow-on-the-Hill. Stan lived at the top of the hill and Peg, 72, lived at the bottom so when they decided to get married they chose a church half way up the hill.

Last week the couple went back to the church they married in to have a blessing. He said: "The church hadn't changed at all. It was fantastic."
