Residents at Lonsdale Court in Middleton marked a very special occasion this week as they joined residents Joyce and Edward Edmunds to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary.
Joyce and Edward grew up locally and after being introduced to each other by Edward’s brother, love blossomed after a first date at the Palace Cinema. They have two daughters and three sons.
Edward worked at BAE Systems, including on the famous Vulcan bomber, and Joyce worked at Birch Services. After a period living in north Wales, Joyce and Edward returned to Middleton and moved into Lonsdale Court two and a half years ago.
Asked about the secret to a long and happy marriage, Joyce and Edward replied “trust and honesty”.
Everyone at RBH wishes Joyce and Edward a very happy anniversary and all the best for many more years together!
