To celebrate the milestone anniversary last week they gathered at the hotel with friends and family for a special meal.

The couple met during a village dance when they were both working at RAF Binbrook and were married in Hatfield, near Doncaster.

They came to live in Scarborough in 1962 when Mr Welburn got a job at Fylingdales.

The couple went on to have a large family, with seven children. They now have more than 20 grandchildren and are also great grandparents.

They were delighted to receive more than 50 cards for their Diamond Wedding, including a special one from the Queen.

The couple are pictured above at home with their telegram and right, on their wedding day. Picture by Neil Silk 132303a
