BARBARA and Les Carter from Knucklas celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with a meal at the Knighton Hotel with family and friends.

The couple were married in Preston, Lancashire on October 5, 1957.

They met at a Preston North End football match a team they both supported.

Barbara said "The highlight of these matches was watching Tommy Finney playing".

The couple have two sons, three grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Les worked as a policeman and Barbara worked in an office before they decided 35 years ago to "leave the rat race of city life and move to the country for a quieter and better life".

Barbara said "We found this in Knucklas and over the years we have made so many friends and have never regretted the decision to move".
