Four generations of one family gathered from all over the country to celebrate the 65th wedding anniversary of Clare couple Reg and Eve Wood.

Reg and Eve met at a youth club dance just before Reg joined the Royal Navy under subscription.

The couplehave three daughters, six grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Eve’s operation for a broken hip a month ago meant the wedding anniversary party plans were in jeopardy, but her determination to make a swift recovery came through.

She said: “We’ve had such a lovely time celebrating, with lots of cards and good wishes from friends and family.

“The 65 years have gone in a flash, and Reg has been the best husband and father to the girls that I could ever wish for. He’s been marvellous while I’ve been out of action, but I’m determined to get mobile again.”
