DIAMOND WEDDING: ‘We’re so happy, we’d do it all over again if we could’

Have your say

Maureen and Fred Lettice will celebrate their golden wedding anniversary with a big party for all their family and friends.

After marrying on March 17, 1962, the couple plan to have a party at Cams Hall Golf Club, in Fareham, with many of the same guests who attended their wedding 50 years ago.

Maureen, now 72, and Fred, 70, met in Wiltshire when she was going to a dance with his sister.

From then on they became a couple and a year later Fred joined the army.

In 1971, Maureen got a place at the Portsmouth Teacher Training College and they moved to the area.

Three years later, Fred trained at the same college and they have both been teachers since then.

The couple now live near Fareham and have two children, Jonathan, 49, and Juliet, 46, plus an 18-year-old grandson, Samuel.
