A MEETING in a pub led to 60 years of successful marriage for a Doncaster couple.

And today Harry and Constance Limb, of Lime Tree Avenue, Armthorpe, are holding a party to celebrate their Diamond Wedding.

That encounter at a bar led to the couple tying the knot at St Jude’s Church, in Hexthorpe, on September 1, 1951.

Harry, aged 90, is a former miner at Markham Main Colliery, while 83-year-old Constance worked at the Crompton Parkinson factory on Wheatley Hall Road.

During the war, Harry was one of the legion of Bevan Boys who worked in the collieries to keep the nation stocked with coal.

The couple have two daughters, Susan Chapman and Janet Dover, three grandchildren, and three great grandchildren.

Relatives from all over the country, including London and Manchester, were heading to Doncaster today for their celebration this evening at Armthorpe Community Centre.

Harry said: “I love her as much today as I did on the day we married.”
