TRIPPING the light fantastic has kept a couple together for more than 65 years.
Young-at-heart Jack and Dorothy Sowden say the secret of their long and happy marriage is sequence dancing.
Mrs Sowden said: "We do everything together. We still enjoy our hobby of modern sequence dancing. It keeps us together and young at heart."
The couple, both 88, met at a concert at the former Savoy Cinema, off Westbourne Road at Marsh, 70 years ago.
They married on August 24, 1940, and have celebrated their 65th anniversary - a blue sapphire celebration.
The couple married at Thornton Lodge Methodist Church and lived in the area before moving to Crosland Moor in 1977.
They still live in Sunningdale Road.
Before the Second World War Mrs Sowden worked at Bottomley and Emerson, Longroyd Bridge, and later part-time at Henry Shaw and Co accountants in Standard House, Huddersfield, as an accounts clerk.
Mr Sowden worked at Whiteley's confectioners in Westgate.
During the war he spent six years in the Army as a gunner, ending up in Europe.
He then became a postman in the Huddersfield area for 33 years. He delivered mail, then worked on the counter, retiring from Elland Post Office.
The couple have two daughters, two grandchildren and three great-grandsons.
They celebrated with a meal out and a family party at the home of their elder daughter in Wales.
