John and Hilda Crocker celebrated their 60th Diamond Wedding anniversary at Richmond Village Northampton.
John was 23 and Hilda was 20 when they got married. Hilda’s dress was borrowed from a neighbour and her mother made the bridesmaid dresses and the wedding bouquet. They were married in Kent where Hilda worked as a telephone exchange girl and John worked as an engineer for BT until he retired.
John and Hilda were one of the very first residents to move to Richmond Northampton in December 2007.
