It wasn’t difficult for Kenneth and Patricia Stanworth to break the ice with each other when they first met.
That’s because they were skating on the rink at Spennymoor at the time!
Kenneth and Patricia were with their respective friends but an encounter on the ice led to a courtship and then marriage and the couple recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.
Restrictions meant they were not able to celebrate with their family (which include two daughters and three grandchildren) and friends, but they are hoping to do this when it’s safe to do so.
We would like to congratulate Mr and Mrs Stanforth on their diamond wedding anniversary.
