Barbara and Trevor Carpenter celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary on Thursdsay, April 3.
The couple were lucky to celebrate their special day, surrounded by family and friend and were very delighted to also receive a card from the Queen.
The couple met at Sunday school in Nuneaton, Warwickshire when they were both eight-years-old.
Their friendship soon blossomed into love when they began going out at 15 and the couple were married in the very same church they met in 1954. Due to the terrible coastal floods of 1953 their engagement was delayed as Trevor was busy helping with sand bags.
Trevor was a navigator in the RAF and the couple have travelled all over including stints in Cyprus and Germany.
Having set up home in Manby, another place where Trevor was stationed in 1965, then the couple moved away again for a further nine years travelling but set up home in Manby for good in 1980 and have been there ever since.
Manby is the place they call home.
The couple who are both now 81 are very close to their family and have one son, their eldest child John and two daughters Anne and their youngest being Theresa. They also have five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
The couple have also had a lot of involvement over the years with Louth Playgoers and Trevor was part of the Louth Riverhead Silverband and Louth Male Voice Choir.
