CARNOUSTIE couple Bob and Jean Maxwell celebrated 60 sparkling years of marriage on Thursday.

The couple, who are both originally from Cowdenbeath, met while out at a dance in their hometown.

They married in the Fife town and lived there for the early part of their marriage before moving south to England.

But in 1974 Mr Maxwell’s job as an engineer with Haliburton saw the pair move back north of the border and they settled in Carnoustie.

They have three children, Stuart, Iain and Margo, along with four grandchildren.

Mr Maxwell says the secret to a long and happy marriage is getting on together well and trying to enjoy life as much as possible.

He added that both he and his wife very much enjoy living in Carnoustie and are glad they picked the town as a place to live almost 40 years ago.

Joining them on their big day at their home in Ireland Street were Depute Lord Lieutenant of Angus Willie Porter, Depute Provost Peter Murphy and Councillor Brian Boyd.
