A ROMANTIC Rubery couple celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary on Valentine’s Day.

Jean and David Hancox, from Gannow Road, marked the major milestone of 60 years of marriage on Thursday, February 14.

The happy pair first met through a mutual friend and went on a blind date together in August 1951.

They were married at St Bartholomew’s Church, Northfield, on a snowy day in 1953 and have one son, Peter, and two grandchildren, Adam and Emma.

Mr Hancox is the former chairman of Bromsgrove District Council and his wife Jean has represented the Sidemoor ward as a councillor.

The diamond couple said their secret to a long and happy marriage was working together over the years and always respected each other’s views.

They marked the anniversary with a family lunch at the Chateau Impney Hotel in Droitwich.
