Couple enjoy diamond day thanks to their daughters
A COUPLE marked a double celebration with their diamond wedding anniversary and an 80th birthday.
Josie and Ivor Godwin were joined by friends and family at Nettlebed Village Club.
Mrs Godwin celebrated her 80th birthday on Wednesday (April 9) with the couple, who have lived in Wanbourne Lane in the village for almost 40 years, marking 60 years of marriage last week.
They married at Nettlebed Church in 1954 and had their wedding reception at the same venue as Saturday’s anniversary celebrations with most of the bridesmaids from their wedding day joining them.
Mrs Godwin said: “He’s been a wonderful husband and dad. Everyday he gets up the way he goes to bed. Nothing stresses him, nothing perturbs him and he’s always happy. He’s said he’s never looked at another woman.
