A Diamond Anniversary at Berryhill Village

4th January, 2012

Two residents at Berryhill Village in Stoke-on-Trent have just celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary.

Sam and Marion Blundred married in December 1951, and 60 years on they hosted a diamond wedding celebration at the Stoke-on-Trent retirement village to celebrate.

All of the 80 guests attending enjoyed a buffet meal and entertainment from local singer Ray Picking, who regularly performs at ExtraCare's villages and schemes.

Sam and Marion were also given a bouquet of flowers from the staff and residents at Berryhill Village. They asked their guests not to bring gifts but instead to give a donation of money which the couple will give to a charity of their choice.

Village Activity Facilitator Ben Warrender said the party had been a very happy occasion. "Everyone who attended thoroughly enjoyed themselves," he said. "Happy diamond anniversary to Sam and Marion!"
