A HEREFORDSHIRE family had two very special reasons to throw a celebratory party for 150 guests at Upton Bishop Millennium Hall.

The golden wedding anniversary of Doug and Olive Jackson was marked by the wedding of their son, Gary, and Dawn Nash at Upton Bishop Church.

Doug and Olive Jackson married at Hereford Register Office 50 years ago and have lived at Phocle Green, near Whitchurch, for 33 years. The couple have three children, Amanda, Gary and Linda.

Olive said: "Gary and Dawn chose the date of our golden wedding anniversary which was a lovely thing for them to do.

"The day felt very special and everyone had a good time at the party."
