Vera, 84, and Glyn Roberts recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary reminiscing about times gone by.

The couple enjoyed doorstep visits from family members, a special cake and a congratulations card from the Queen.

It was their love of dancing that brought them together when Vera was just 15.

They would meet up after work – Glyn, now 88, was a builder and Vera, now 84, worked at Fullwoods.

Mr Roberts said: “I rode a motorbike. I would wait for her on Elson Road to come along on her bicycle then she would hold on to my shoulder and I would ride off giving her a tow up the hills.”

They married in Ellesmere Methodist Church and have three children – Clive, Carl and Maxine – and seven grandchildren.

The couple share a love of playing bowls at the Ellesmere Bowling Club and Mr Roberts is looking forward to re-starting when restrictions allow.
