After 65 years of marriage Grace and John Blake still join in the hobbies they enjoyed as newlyweds including going to concerts, bushwalking and playing sports.

Since those early days then they have seen their family grow. They now have three children, five grandchildren and four great grandchildren. 

On Wednesday, they celebrated 65 years with a special lunch with their family.

They pair met as teenagers at Lakemba Methodist Church before marrying there in 1952.

They have spent married life in St George; first at Kingsgrove where they raised their family and then at Oatley for the last 20 years.

These days their days are spent catching up with friends and family, keeping fit and attending concerts.

On Sundays, you will still see the couple at their local Uniting Church service and on special occasions will even spot Grace singing in the choir.
