King's Lynn Memory Lane: Heacham golden weddings in 1997 like Queen and Prince Philip, Burnham Market, Northwold Primary, Heacham, Gayton Brownies, West Walton, Watlington

Heacham couples who missed out on the chance of celebrating their golden weddings with the Queen and Prince Philip in July 1997 were not left disappointed.

That was the year the royal couple reached 50 years and invited other golden wedding couples to a party at Buckingham Palace. Remarkably, in Heacham alone, there were 13 couples celebrating golden anniversaries, but none had royal invitations. Alan and Dolly Guy (front, cutting the cake) of South Moor Drive came to the rescue with their own garden party held on the same day as the royal palace event.

Pictured in the background, with parish council representatives Mr and Mrs Les Law (who celebrated their golden wedding in 1976) are the other couples (in no order): Mr and Mrs Baker, Bell, Chasney, Harrod, Hemming, Hudson, Jenkinson, Lake and Lilley. Unable to be present were Mr and Mrs Beasley, Bradfield and Thomas. MLNF-9707244
