ROTHERHAM couple John and Jessie Senior have celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary.
Now living at Broadacres Care Home, on Naylor Street, Rawmarsh, the pair have been together more than 70 years.
They first met at a dance in Sheffield on 5th April 1947 and later married at St Paul’s Church in Arbourthorne, which has since been demolished.
Unlike the church, John and Jessie’s marriage is still standing strong, more than 65 years after they tied the knot.
Fellow residents, staff and friends at Broadacres Care Home helped commemorate the occasion with flowers, a personalised card, tea and cakes.
Jessie said: “We didn’t want a fuss so it was nice to share cakes and tea with friends. It was a lovely day.”
