Leslie, 94, and Clarice Kidd, 92, from Easton, will be marking their platinum celebration on September 9.

Former farm labourer and lorry driver, Mr Kidd, who grew up in Honingham, met his future wife, Clarice Bugg, from Easton, in 1948/9 while they took the bus into Norwich city centre to watch films.

They married in 1950 at Easton church before moving to Colton.

The couple, who have two children, four grandchildren and one great-grandchild, moved to their Easton home, where they still live, in 1969.

Former domestic servant Mrs Kidd, who was a cook at Easton College for 23 years, said: “We always got on. We always have a laugh. I like to think I’m the boss with the cooking.”

Her husband said: “I have never regretted a day with her. She is so easy-going.”
