South Ayrshire Depute Provost, Mary Kilpatrick, celebrated with Jim and Dora on their Diamond Wedding anniversary.
Jim and Dora Jess celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary recently, with the big day sparking thoughts of how the first met.
Jim, from Annbank, and Dora, from Mossblown, met while dancing cheek-to-cheek at the Annbank Village Hall. When they later married at Annbank House Hotel, they were the first in the village to have held their ceremony in a hotel.
The couple, who now live in Ayr, have raised three daughters, and enjoy spending time with their five grandchildren and great grandson.
South Ayrshire Depute Provost, Mary Kilpatrick, congratulated the couple on their very special anniversary.
