Di­a­mond dancers’ big an­niver­sary

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

A COU­PLE who were cor­ner­stones of the Peter­bor­ough danc­ing com­mu­nity for decades re­turned to the city where they fell in love to cel­e­brate their 60th wed­ding an­niver­sary. Len Bri­ers (83) and wife Betty (80) – both Peter­bor­ough born and bred – jointly ran so­cial tea-dances in Peter­bor­ough for more than 14 years in com­mu­nity cen­tres across the city. They moved to Poole in 2004 to be near their daugh­ters, but re­turned for a party with 75 friends and fam­ily at Eye Manor Farm Com­mu­nity Cen­tre on June 12 to mark their di­a­mond wed­ding and Betty’s 80th birth­day, which was on June 10. The cou­ple, who mar­ried on June 17 1950, also had a fam­ily party on their an­niver­sary it­self. Betty said: “Danc­ing has al­ways been a huge part of our life so it made sense to do this for our party. “We still know lots of peo­ple up here. We had a great turn out – it was a re­ally lovely day.”
