A PEEBLES couple will celebrate their Diamond Wedding anniversary this week.

David Jappy and Mary Burnett tied the knot at Hawick Old Parish Church on December 27, 1958.

To mark 60 years of matrimonial bliss the couple, who live in Kingsway, will be joined by family and friends for a celebration at Peebles Hydro.

David and Mary have four children - son David, and daughters Katherine Lothian, Alison McNeil, and Sandra Allan - as well as two grandchildren.

David, who is 84 years old, was a shepherd throughout his working life and 82-year-old Mary was a nurse.

The couple moved to Peebles to enjoy their retirement around 20 years ago.
