Desmond and Mavis Smith (81) fell in love as soon as they met each other and their feelings are still the same 60 years later.

The couple, of Culpins Close, Spalding, shared their marriage milestone with family and friends at the town’s Woodlands Hotel before hosting a barbecue for about 30 people at their home.

Desmond, a retired tractor driver, said: “We first met at the old Regent Picture House in Spalding when we were both 16 and we’ve been together ever since.

“It’s true love and we still think the world of one another, even though people say we’ve been together a long time. Photo (NIKKI GRIFFIN): SG080813-130NG.
