The couple, from South Cerney, will be celebrating with a party on Saturday where they’re expecting 80 people to join them.

They have four children – Nigel and Paul Stratford, Helen Adair and Karen White as well as seven grandchildren – Dean and Jack Stratford, Amy, Joe and Lee Adair, Ben White and Rachel White.

Gordon says the couple are delighted with the landmark and still remembers when he first set his eyes on Rosemary and how they met.

“It’s great, it’s got to be right if we’ve been married for 60 years,” he said.

“I can remember meeting her at her first day at school.

“I was a friend of her brother, he still comes round and has tea with us on Thursdays.”
