DIAMOND couple Walton and Vera Parry have just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.

The couple, pictured now and on their wedding day, marked the anniversary with an afternoon party for family.

The couple, originally from Nottinghamshire, moved to Lepton about 20 years ago to live near their son David.

They have two others sons, Stephen and Andrew, seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

David said: “They have had a very happy marriage.’’

Mr Parry, who is 92, lives at The Charlton Centre Nursing Home in Batley while his wife, who is 83, lives at Lascelles Hall Care Home.

They were members of Lepton Church and still enjoy spending time with family and friends.
