John and Pamela McGhee celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary with a roast lunch which they enjoyed with their family. The pair from Mildenhall were married on September 19 1953.
Pamela said the secret to a long and happy marriage was ‘patience and understanding’.
John and Pamela met at a dance while John was working as a police officer for the Royal Air Force, based at RAF Honington, and Pamela was a child nurse working in Stowlangtoft.
During John’s career with the forces the pair enjoyed travelling widely.
On returning to Mildenhall John opened a DIY shop in the centre of the town.
The pair have a son and daughter and two grandchildren with a great grandchild due next month.
John currently serves on the parish and district council.
