A Pitmedden couple have celebrated their diamond anniversary, after 60 years of marriage.

Albert and Alice Slessor, of Bronie Court, received a bouquet of flowers and a bottle of commemorative whisky from Mid-Formartine councillor Allan Hendry on Friday, along with a personal message from Her Majesty The Queen congratulating them on their long marriage.

Asked what the secret of their success was, former Formartine United goalkeeper Mr Gray answered: “Share and share alike!

“We give and take, and there isn’t a boss.”

The couple have two daughters, Sheena and June, two grandsons Mark and Scott, and two great-grand-daughters Zoe Alice and Kayleigh.
