A HAPPY Auchinleck couple have recently celebrated 60 years of marriage.

Margaret and George Waddell celebrated their Diamond wedding anniversary after tying the knot back in 1961.

Provost Barry Douglas and Councillor Neil McGhee visited Margaret and George at their home in the town recently to help them celebrate the occasion.

Margaret and George were presented with a basket of flowers on behalf of East Ayrshire Council, and Richard Vernon, deputy lieutenant for Ayrshire and Arran, presented the couple with a card from the Queen.
