A DUNFERMLINE couple are celebrating their Diamond Wedding anniversary this week.

Joyce, 79, and Alex Moffat, 82, from Kennedy Crescent, first met in 1962 at the Kinema Ballroom in Dunfermline and have since shared a lifetime together.

The happy couple are now celebrating 60 years of blissful marriage today (Thursday, March 16).

Linda Mackay, their eldest daughter of three, told the Press "They've had a really good marriage, like everybody else they've had their ups and downs. My mum had to have a triple heart bypass a few years ago so she's not got great mobility but my dad's the one who looks after her.

"Don't get me wrong my mum can get out and about but he's the one who sees to her and she relies on him!"

Both friendly people who enjoy the company of friends and family, Joyce and Alex have a big family with two daughters, Linda and Allison, a son, Alex, five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

They've been great role models on how to have a happy and loving marriage.

Linda continued: "I love my mum and dad to bits, I don't know what I would do if I didn't have them in my life. The older they get and as things happen you always have that in the back of your mind, but my mum absolutely adores my dad and my dad does the same for her."

Ex-contractor Alex and Joyce, a former civil service worker and teaching assistant at Queen Anne, will be celebrating their anniversary and Joyce's birthday in May with a big party when Allison visits from America.

Linda added: "We just want them to keep being themselves. We're really proud of them and the way that they've brought us up."
