Di­a­mond cel­e­bra­tions

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place - ABBY BROWN

A shared in­ter­est in mo­torhomes and or­gans have kept a couple to­gether for 60 years.

Bill and Au­drey Jami­son cel­e­brated their di­a­mond wed­ding an­niver­sary on Novem­ber 19.

The couple, who moved to Mata­mata 42 years ago, be­lieve their shared in­ter­ests keep them to­gether. They enjoy trav­el­ling around in mo­torhomes which Bill had built for them. They also enjoy the friend­ships they have gained through be­ing mem­bers of the Waikato Car­a­van Club and the Waikato Area of the New Zealand Mo­tor Car­a­van As­so­ci­a­tion, the lat­ter of which they have gained a life mem­ber­ship with.

They had a cel­e­bra­tion din­ner with fam­ily on their an­niver­sary and also cel­e­brated it again with an­other din­ner with their or­gan club friends.

The couple had be­come friends when they worked at the Mata­mata County Coun­cil. ‘‘Au­drey worked in the of­fice and of course I had to go to the of­fice and there were two or three girls there and I picked the best one out of the group,’’ Bill said.

Their first child ar­rived two years af­ter they mar­ried. Their two chil­dren, Arthur and Rosanne, now live in Aus­tralia and Hamil­ton.
