CHRISTMAS marked a double celebration for couple Hermione and Bernard How.
The Worlington pair celebrated their diamond wedding on Boxing Day.
They enjoyed a party at their local pub with about 30 family and friends.
Mr and Mrs How, 87 and 82 respectively, met at a Saturday night dance in Isleham in 1949 and married two years later in Isleham Church.
Mr How worked as a carpenter for 36 years for Haymills, which was based in Stowmarket. The pair have lived in the same house in Worlington for 60 years.
The couple have two sons and two grandsons.
When asked about the secret to a successful marriage, he said: “It’s about give and take.”
