Residents of Richmond Northampton Care Home, recently celebrated the Platinum 70th Wedding anniversary of Brian and Enid Walsh
The happy couple had a grand reunion with family in Yorkshire and then went on to celebrate with residents at Richmond Northampton.
The residents at Richmond Northampton Retirement Village gathered to celebrate this fantastic milestone with drinks and a buffet in the five star restaurant, and to top it all off had local Brass band Fourtissimo to play the evening away.
Brian 91 and Enid 93 have lived at Richmond Northampton since 2007. Enid is the only surviving niece of the first man to fly across the Atlantic.
The pair were married only months after World War Two had broken out and Brian was called away to France with the British Expeditionary Force. When he unexpectedly returned from Dunkirk in June 1940, the pair, who had been engaged since Christmas, were married in their childhood home of Manchester.
Resident Mrs Smith said “It is a fantastic mile stone to reach and one of which many younger couples may not be able to achieve”
Activity Co-ordinator Christopher Rayatt said “It was fantastic to see the war time wedding photos and we could still recognise the special couple”
