Seaside meeting led to 60 happy years.

Golcar couple Peter and Alice Wiggin have just celebrated their diamond wedding.

The couple, who live in Holmfield Drive, met in Morecambe while they were serving with the Royal Air Force and the Women's Auxiliary Air Force.

They are pictured now and on their wedding day at St John's Church, Golcar.

After their marriage, they moved to Mr Wiggin's birthplace of Gloucester.

They ran a fruit, vegetable and confectioner's shop there until 1951, when they returned to Huddersfield.

Mr Wiggin, 82, worked mainly in the transport industry at Huddersfield firms.

He retired in 1987 after 14 years at Bradford-based distribution firm Signode, where he was assistant deputy manager in the transport and customer liaison department.

Mrs Wiggin, also 82, worked in textiles and also for many years at Harry Howarth's frozen food stall in Huddersfield's Queensgate Market.

The couple have one daughter and three grand-daughters.

Mr Wiggin played cricket for Golcar during the 1950s and now enjoys watching sport. Mrs Wiggin enjoys doing crosswords.
