Pulham Market couple celebrate diamond wedding anniversary
A Pulham Market couple celebrated 60 years of married life last week with a big party surrounded by family and friends.
Alan and Joyce Kent tied the knot on a sunny day at Mendham Church, near Harleston, on July 19, 1952.
They were joined by almost 100 relatives and friends for a diamond wedding party at Wortwell Village Hall on July 21.
Mrs Kent first met her future husband when she went to visit her father who was working for Mr Kent's father at a farm in Mendham.
Following their marriage, the couple went on to run their own farm at Starston. Mr Kent, who was also an agricultural contractor, went on to set up his own haulage business, which went on to become Kent Skips in Pulham Market.
