Do you share platinum wedding anniversary date with the Queen?

Did you, or someone you know, get married in 1947, the same year as The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh?

If so it means you will be celebrating your platinum wedding anniversary – 70 years of marriage – during 2017. The royal couple celebrate theirs on November 20.

Wealden Council plans mark the occasion by celebrating the special anniversay of local couples.

Chairman, Cllr Chris Hardy said: “Seventy years of marriage is a wonderful achievement of love and commitment. It is certainly worthy of recognition.

“Whilst we can’t manage something as grand as a royal occasion I would like the opportunity to visit and congratulate our platinum couples on behalf of Wealden.”

If you, or someone you know, is celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary anytime during 2017 and would like to be part of the Wealden celebration please contact Amy Evans, PA to the chairman of Wealden Council, by emailing, or phoninng 10892 602720.
