Ann and Bob Ramsey met in Woodbridge at a Saturday night dance, and while Ann “didn’t really notice him at first”, the couple soon got together, marrying at Grundisburgh Church on January 18 1958.

The couple, who have three children, four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, have a special celebration booked at the Orwell Hotel in Felixstowe alongside 77 family and friends, with an aptly organised dinner dance to mark the occasion.

Ann, 79, who worked as an invoice clerk and cashier, while husband Bob, 82, has always worked on farms, said: “It just doesn’t seem possible that 60 years could have gone by so quickly.

“I have been quite ill the last two years and we were trying to think what makes a long marriage reasonably happy, and I think it is loyalty.
