Golden cou­ples par­tied in style at cel­e­bra­tion

Hamilton Advertiser - - GOLDEN COUPLES - Robert Mitchell

Spend­ing 50 years to­gether is rea­son to cel­e­brate – and here are some more cou­ples who mar­ried in 1968 and en­joyed a bumper party in South La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s Hamil­ton head­quar­ters.

We pub­lished some of the pic­tures from the event last week and are de­lighted to be able to high­light some more.

Hosted jointly by North and South La­nark­shire coun­cils, the happy cou­ples danced the af­ter­noon away as they rem­i­nisced about their big day half a cen­tury ago.

The provosts of both ar­eas held two re­cep­tions for any La­nark­shire cou­ple cel­e­brat­ing their 50th wed­ding an­niver­sary in 2018.

South La­nark­shire’s Provost Ian Mcal­lan said: “There is no one for­mula for a happy mar­riage – ev­ery one is unique and there are dif­fer­ent dif­fi­cul­ties and joys that each cou­ple faces along the way.

“What we saw at this event, how­ever, is the same truth for all – that it is all about find­ing that one per­son who is for you and, with that per­fect pair­ing, a bond is formed that is un­shake­able.”
