A COUPLE who are keen ballroom dancers celebrated their 60th year of wedded bliss.

Long lasting Somercotes couple Sheila and Pete Burton were sent a congratulatory card from the Queen on Thursday to mark their diamond anniversary.

The twosome, of Everest Drive in the village, met while at a Somercotes church ballroom dance on Sleetmoor Lane.

When former bricklayer Pete, now 80, was asked what the secret to their relationship is, he said: “I don’t know - give and take I suppose!”

Pete and former explosives factory worker Sheila, 79, shared a love of dancing - travelling as far as Blackpool to go to various ballroom events over the years.
