An Attleborough couple with a lifelong passion for travel are preparing to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary.

Mae and Trevor Moffett, both 86, will mark the milestone on March 30 with family in Fuengirola on Spain's Costa del Sol.

Gill Browne, daughter, said: 'They love this location and hotel and have been going there for many years.

'They both love ballroom dancing, although they don't do too much of it nowadays, and they find that the hotels in Spain cater well for the older generation who like to dance.'

Mr and Mrs Moffett went to school together, and got engaged when they were 21. Mrs Moffett worked as a midwife and Mr Moffett joined the Royal Air Force.

She said: 'We returned to England in 1968 and after working at RAF Coltishall and then a few years later at RAF Honington dad retired from the RAF at 45 and they bought their first house - the house where they live now.
