This is a photo of great friends of mine, Ces and Doreen Tate, who will be celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary on the 14th of February – Valentines Day.
Ces was a tanker driver at Teesport and then at Jarrow when Teesport closed. Ces ran the Teesside branch of 44 club for many years organising many meetings which we all enjoyed.
They are both very active members of the local bowling team and Doreen keeps fit by playing badminton twice a week and loves spoiling their grand children and great-grand children.
We wish them many more happy years together.
