A CARNOUSTIE couple celebrated 60 sparkling years of marriage on Thursday.

Isabella and Valentine Robb were marking the milestone after marrying on December 1, 1951, at Tealing Church.

Mr Robb grew up on a farm in Eassie while Mrs Robb was born and brought up in Edzell. They met while out at the Caird Hall, Dundee, and after marrying lived on the farm.

The couple moved to Carnoustie 54 years ago when Mr Robb got a job making ready mix concrete and Mrs Robb worked at Camus House.

They have two daughters, Rosemary and Diane as well as six grandchildren and three great grandchildren with another one on the way.
