AN ILKESTON couple celebrated 50 years of marriage this week with friends and family and one special guest.

Glenys and Tony Green, both 69, held a party to mark their golden wedding and the guest of honour was Glenys’ 90-year-old mum, Jessie Walters.

Glenys said: “People keep saying to me it’s not many can say that they’re celebrating their golden wedding with their mum.

“She turns 91 next month so it was a bit of a double celebration.

“We had a lovely do with all the family there and everyone really enjoyed themselves and had a great time.”

The couple who met at the Mayfair dance hall in Long Eaton, will be spending a week in Skegness to celebrate their anniversary.

They have daughter Michelle and son John and two grandchildren Alex, 19, and Shannon, 15.
