Henley couple celebrate 60 years together

TWO lifelong Henley residents celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary yesterday (Thursday).

Margaret and Reg Grant were born in the town and attended Henley Secondary Modern School, now the site of The Henley College’s Rotherfield campus.

They met after Mrs Grant, now 81, left school and took a job as a cashier at W H Smith, which at the time was on the corner of Duke Street and Hart Street.

Mr Grant, who is 82, had finished his studies the previous year and was already working there.

The couple were married at Holy Trinity Church in Greys Hill in 1954 and held the reception at the church hall.
