A Letchworth couple who reached 60 years of marriage today are “lucky to have each other”.

Stan and Doris Mynard, of Romany Close, are celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary with a tea party among friends, family and neighbours on today.

Stan said: “We met each other at the dance hall on Hermitage Road in Hitchin many years ago, and we have both lived in Hertfordshire for much of our lives.

“We have been lucky to have each other and lucky that we have survived this long.
