A couple who will mark their golden wedding anniversary, today, Saturday, are still going to bingo – where their romance ignited more than 50 years ago.

Tony Lines spotted his future wife Marie while playing bingo in 1961 and decided to ask her out while she was standing in the queue for the toilets.

Three years later, on September 6, 1964, the couple got married.

Tony, 70, and Marie, 67, who live in Bedford Road, Hitchin, will mark their 50th wedding anniversary with a meal at the Novotel in Stevenage.

“Throughout the years we have mucked about and we have relied and trusted each other,” said Tony.
