“I USED to roar about on a motorbike and she was daft enough to jump on the back,” jokes Clarence Harris on how he and his wife Audrey first met.

The couple’s 60-year journey reached a milestone last week when they celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary.

Their relationship started in 1947 when Mr Harris, who was a plumber, had a job in Ixworth where his bride-to-be worked as a hairdresser.

They married in Ixworth in 1951 and have three children.

Mr Harris was a plumber for Thompson Brothers, in Bury, for about 20 years.

He then became a locksmith for AC Leigh until he retired.

Mr Harris, 85, enjoyed racing pigeons and his wife, 81, plays bowls. Asked about the secret to a long-lasting marriage, he said: “It’s about give and take.” To celebrate they had a meal with family and friends.
