John and Betty Stevenson recently celebrated their Diamond wedding anniversary in Ayr.

John, originally from Glasgow, met Betty, in her hometown of Salisbury, Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia) where the couple eventually married. With a large family, the Stevenson clan grew to four daughters, nine grandchildren and one great grandson.

Three of their four daughters live abroad but all came together for a family celebration when John and Betty were taken to Crieff Hydro, where they renewed their wedding vows before a joint 80th birthday meal with other family from across Britain and Europe.

South Ayrshire Provost, Helen Moonie, congratulated the couple on their very special anniversary.
