A COUPLE in Cirencester have celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary.
Diamond anniversaries are for those who have celebrated 60 years of marriage.
Jean Piggott – from Cirencester – and Andrew Piggott – who is from Ireland but has lived most of his life in England – celebrated this milestone recently.
As well as a small party, as part of the celebrations, they received a letter from the Queen, which can be seen in the picture, along with a cake, flowers and balloons.
These cards are typically sent from the queen to those who celebrate their diamond wedding anniversary.
They are also received by those who celebrate their 65th and 70th wedding anniversaries, as well as those who celebrate their 100 and 105th birthday.
Members of the family have sent the Standard a message to the couple as they hit the milestone.
“Congratulations on your 60th wedding anniversary, love from family – Steve, Andrew and Vanessa.”
