A MORECAMBE couple have proved that diamonds really are forever.

Marian and Doug Currey, of Hawksworth Avenue, Heysham, will celebrate their diamond wedding anniversary on February 3 with a trip to Blackpool.

The couple were married on the same day back in 1951 at the Parliament Street Methodist Church while Mr Currey was on leave from National Service.

Like so many young couples of the era they met in the Tower Ballroom on Morecambe Promenade two years before.
