Congratulations to Alan and Joyce, residents at Freedom Morayfield, who just celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary!
To commemorate their special day, staff hosted drinks and nibbles for residents in the community centre, where Alan and Joyce were treated to gifts, live music, well-wishes and a delicious banana cake baked by the community chef.
For those that couldn't make it to the commemorations, community staff set up a Zoom call so they could see and join in the fun.
Alan and Joyce were first married in Saint Matthew’s Church of England in Ipswich on 29th July, 1950.
When asked for the secret to a long and happy marriage, both said trust, making up after arguments and doing things to maintain your love are all equally important.
Congratulations again Alan and Joyce – we wish you all the happiness in the world!
