A couple of caravan holiday enthusiasts are celebrating 60 years of marriage.
Joe and Maureen Burns, of Butts Mount, Great Harwood, marked their Diamond Wedding anniversary on September 10 with family and friends and received a card from the Queen congratulating them on their landmark wedding anniversary.
The couple, who have one daughter Lynne, three grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, met after Joe completed his National Service and later married at Rishton Parish Church in 1955.
Joe, 83, originally from Clayton-le-Moors and Maureen, 80, from Rishton, then settled into their first home in Great Harwood in 1960 and have lived in the town ever since.
Joe worked as a self-employed window cleaner in Great Harwood for 20 years before working at Hyndburn council’s crematorium and cemeteries department. He retired at the age of 60.
He said: “I love Maureen so much. I love her as much today as I did in 1955.”
Maureen worked as a weaver in Rishton and Great Harwood.
She said: “We have had a brilliant life so far. I couldn’t have wished for anything better.”
