Wetherby Manor residents celebrate platinum wedding milestone
A Wetherby couple celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on Wednesday, 26 May.
Clive, 91, and Joan Dickinson, 92, have lived at Anchor’s Wetherby Manor care home on St.James Street for four years and were presented with flowers and a card from the Queen for the occasion.
Clive and Joan, who are originally from Leeds, met in 1947 at a local youth club and married at St Peter’s Church in Hunslet in 1951. Clive was a civil engineer and Joan was a secretary. They have three children, eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren and attribute “intelligence” to the success of their marriage.
I feel very lucky to be able to celebrate 70 years of marriage.
The couple enjoyed a lovely day with their family who joined them for a celebratory meal in Rudding Park, near Harrogate.
Judith Scurr, Home Manager at Anchor’s Wetherby Manor said:
Clive and Joan are lovely people and we were delighted to be part of their celebrations. “They enjoy many of the activities we organise for residents at Anchor’s Wetherby Manor. They love playing card games and entertainers. Clive especially enjoys golf putting organised by the care team.
