They married on her birthday – September 28 in Littleover, Derby, and spent their honeymoon touring the UK, Ireland and Europe.

Sydney was where they settled, raising their two daughters, Sally and Jayne, at Hurstville Grove.

They look forward to spending time with their children and grand-children on their anniversary.
