Have your say

A Stonehaven couple celebrated a milestone last week when on November 10, they celebrated an amazing sixty years of marriage.

George met his wife Phemie at a dance at the Alexandria Hotel in Stonehaven when they were both seventeen.

They then went on to get married in Fetteresso Church followed by a reception in the Carron Tea Rooms. A picture of their wedding day can now be seen on the wall of the Carron Restaurant.

Mr Duncan worked as a farm servant before moving into the roads department and Mrs Duncan worked in a net factory.

During their sixty years together they have had four children, three daughters and a son.

Their family has expanded over the years to include eight grand children and eight great-grandchildren.

To mark the milestone in their marriage, the couple received a telegram from the Queen.

So what is their secret to a long marriage?

With a smile both reply that they don’t know, but what ever the secret, Mr and Mrs Duncan both still seem very much in love.
