A Portlethen couple have celebrated a milestone in their marriage.

Eric and Myra Turner celebrated their Diamond Wedding anniversary on December 24. Mr and Mrs Turner, who moved to Portlethen from Aberdeen two years ago, met through work and were married in Greyfriars Church in Aberdeen sixty years ago.

On their wedding day they were greeted by a guard of honour from the life boys, as Myra was a life boy leader. Following their wedding they moved to London. However as their family started to expand they decided to move back to Aberdeen to raise their children.

They have two daughters, both of whom live in Portlethen. They also have six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

To celebrate their sixty years of marriage, Mr and Mrs Turner spent the day with family. They were also visited by Councillor Paul Melling and the Lord Lieutenant of Kincardineshire, Carol Kinghorn, who congratulated the couple on their sixty years together.

Eric, who was managing director of P and O Ferries and was awarded an O.B.E in 1989 and Myra, who worked for the National Dock Labour board, received a telegram of congratulations from the Queen.
