Diamond Couple Sparkle
Having built and shared a lifetime of memories and events with family and friends, we are always delighted to welcome couples to reside in our care homes. With this, comes the joy of being able to celebrate some significant landmark anniversaries for some of our long-wed couples, especially when it’s a diamond wedding anniversary.
A shining example of enduring love was celebrated at Newcross Care Home recently for one couple, Janet and Thomas Wright, to mark their diamond wedding anniversary.
Janet and Thomas first met 70 years ago when they both worked in the same office at an engineering firm, where they would enjoy a flirtatious laugh and a joke together. A fantastic friendship soon blossomed, and Thomas eventually asked Janet out on a date.
Having married on 18th June 1960, the loved-up couple soon had two beautiful children, Susan and Paul, and credit caring for one another as their secret to a life-long marriage. Thomas said, “It is very important to be loving to each other and to be with someone who understands you. It is important to realise what you have and to think of each other every day.”
Staff at Newcross helped the couple commemorate their important milestone with a romantic meal for two, complete with petals scattered on the dining table. The pair decorated a cupcake for one another exchanged gifts, and read cards sent to the home from family and friends.
We wish you both many more happy years together from all of us at Avery!
