A COUPLE from Donnington have celebrated their golden wedding anniversary.

Don and Margaret Hall have marked their impressive 50-year milestone with a cruise onboard the Oriana with close friends.

The couple, who are both 76 years old, visited Lisbon, Gran Canaria and Madeira among other destinations on their cruise as part of their anniversary celebrations.

Don and Margaret enjoyed an anniversary cake arranged by their daughter Tracey, and Margaret was surprised by seven red roses given to her by husband Don to mark the special occasion.

The couple tied the knot on June 2, 1962 at Hunston Church and enjoyed a reception surrounded by 100 guests at Hunston village hall. Both were both 23 when they met at a local dance, when Don had not long been back from national service in Hong Kong. They were married at the age of 26 and have two children, Tracey, 41 and Alan, 45 and two grandchildren, Grace, 13 and George, 11.
