Sammy and Annie McGregor were visited by the Mayor, Councillor Steven Callaghan, on August 15 as they marked 60 years of marriage. The couple shared stories of their marriage over a cuppa with the mayor – even breaking out the fine china they received as a wedding gift all those years ago.
Sammy, aged 92 and Annie, 85, were married in First Limavady Presbyterian Church and went on to have two daughters.
The Mayor said: “As Mayor it was an honour for me to meet with Sammy and Annie and offer my best wishes on behalf of the Borough. I hope they enjoyed celebrating the occasion with their loved ones.”
The couple’s daughter, Rhonda Thompson added: “Mum and dad were delighted to meet the mayor and really enjoyed his visit, as it made them both feel extra special on their big day.”
