Th­ese happy cou­ples from Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang were hon­oured at a cel­e­bra­tion mark­ing their 50th wed­ding an­niver­saries.

The per­fect part­ners en­joyed a spe­cial af­ter­noon in their golden year by at­tend­ing the event at the Civic Cen­tre in Mother­well, rem­i­nisc­ing about their big day half a cen­tury ago with an­other185 cou­ples who were mar­ried in 1965.

As well as en­joy­ing af­ter­noon tea and mu­sic from the 1960s, they were each pre­sented with a gift from the event’s joint or­gan­is­ers – North and South La­nark­shire coun­cils – to mark their im­pres­sive five decades of mar­riage.

South La­nark­shire Provost Eileen Lo­gan said: “This party is a small to­ken of our ap­pre­ci­a­tion to mark the 50 years the cou­ples have had to­gether – and long may they con­tinue.”
