John and Norma Timms celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary on 11th June.
They married in 1949 aged 19 and 20 in Redditch, Worcestershire where they were both born and lived for many years.
It was a huge wrench to leave an area they knew and loved so much but they were immediately bowled over by our friendly town and how helpful and kind everyone is.
And having lived all their lives within the shadow of Birmingham, they could not believe how blue the sky is here and how wonderful the sunsets.
John and Norma will be celebrating later in the year with a mini break in Worcestershire with their three daughters and families.
When asked about the secret of their long marriage Norma said: “It’s all a question of give and take.”
