Love is the key to a long and happy life

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Remember When? -

A HAPPY cou­ple cel­e­brated their 70th wed­ding an­niver­sary sur­rounded by fam­ily and friends.

Joe and Kitty Cole, of St Benet’s Way, Ten­ter­den, were joined by those clos­est to them at Chart Hills golf club in Bid­den­den for their spe­cial oc­ca­sion last week.

The cou­ple met aged 14 and 15 re­spec­tively in their na­tive West Ham, be­fore get­ting mar­ried in 1938 and go­ing on to have two sons, Derek and Alan.

Now aged 91 and 92, Mr and Mrs Cole’s se­cret of a happy mar­riage re­mains sim­ple but ef­fec­tive.

Mrs Cole said: “He tells me he loves me and I tell him I love him - we keep the love go­ing be­tween us.

“We have the odd ar­gu­ment but we al­ways end up say­ing, I love you.”

Mr Cole is a re­tired boil­er­maker, while Mrs Cole gave up work shortly af­ter get­ting mar- ried only to re­turn to part-time work when their sons were older.

They moved to Ten­ter­den four years ago hav­ing lived in Welling, Belvedere, Corn­wall, Bex­ley­heath, Hawkhurst and Ul­combe.
