Cou­ples get to­gether for Golden Wed­dings

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang hus­bands and wives were among 130 cou­ples who cel­e­brated their golden wed­ding an­niver­saries with the provosts of South and North La­nark­shire.

The an­nual La­nark­shire Golden Wed­ding re­cep­tion took place in the ban­quet­ing hall of the South La­nark­shire Coun­cil head­quar­ters build­ing in Hamil­ton and saw so many cou­ples ap­ply­ing to at­tend that the event was split over two days.

The La­nark­shire Golden Wed­ding re­cep­tion was launched to mark the Queen and Prince Philip’s 50th an­niver­sary and the two La­nark­shire lo­cal au­thor­i­ties take turns at host­ing it.

P rov o s t o f S ou t h La­nark­shire Eileen Lo­gan said; “I was de­lighted to wel­come all our cou­ples from across La­nark­shire to this year’s re­cep­tions in Hamil­ton.

“I very much en­joyed chat­ting to them and hear­ing their sto­ries of the last 50 years and more.

“Judg­ing by the danc­ing and com­ments I heard when it was time to head for home, they clearly had a lovely time.

“On be­half of the two coun­cils I would like to say thank you to the cou­ples and ev­ery­one in­volved in host­ing the events for mak­ing them such a suc­cess.”
