A couple who met at a funfair when they were teenagers are set to celebrate an impressive 73 years of wedded bliss in Saturday.

Jack Sheldon, 94, originally from Ripley and wife Marion, 93, from Waingroves, met when they were about 15 at Codnor’s fairground and have been together ever since.

Marion was a factory worker and later the supervisor at I&R Morley. Jack became a shop assistant after leaving school before joining the Grenedier Guards as a superintendent sergeant in 1940.
