There were lots of celebrations this week for a Patna couple who were toasting to 50 happy years together.

Jim and Jan Gerrard of Carnshalloch Avenue marked their golden wedding anniversary alongside friends, family and even a visit from Councillor Drew Filson.

Banners adorned the garden fence and a bouquet was presented to the pair who posed for a few special photos.

Congratulations, Jim and Jan, from everyone at the Cumnock Chronicle.
