Family and friends joined Laurence Dale, 84, and his wife Daphne, 83, for a buffet lunch at Leziate Park to celebrate the couple’s diamond wedding anniversary.
Laurence and Daphne married at Ashwicken Church and went on to become church wardens there.
Daphne was born at Leziate and she met Laurence at Ashwicken when his parents moved to Elm Tree Farm after living in Australia for a time.
The couple have three children, Shaun and Ashley and Susan.
As well as flowers sent from family living in Australia, the couple also received a card of congratulations from The Queen.
