A WEE COUNTY couple have been reflecting on a "good life together" after 60 years of marriage.

Mary and Robert Craig, from Tullibody, celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary last week and are planning a massive celebration later this month.

The couple were married on October 5, 1963, at St John’s English Church on Broad Street and have lived at various addresses in Clacks before settling down in Tullibody.

And to mark the occasion, they have booked out Alloa Town Hall in a couple of weeks for a big party with their extended family.

Speaking to the Advertiser about the occasion, Mary said: “The only thing is we’re getting old now, that’s our worry now. We’ve had a good life together, we’ve lived together.

“He thinks he’s the boss, so I just leave him to think that.

"We’ve got four boys and eight grandkids and nine great-grandchildren and we’ve lived a good life.”

Robert and Mary had four children – Gary, Brian, Colin and Scott – and now have eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren that they look after.

Mary added: “We’ve got four good sons and four good daughters-in-law so they’re quite attentive to us.

“One of them came to us on Thursday to take us to dinner for our anniversary so that was a lovely day.

“We had dinner at the Woodsman in Fishcross, but I went straight to my bed as soon as I got in.

“We’ve booked Alloa Town Hall for October 21 and we’ve invited all the family that we haven’t seen in a while.”

Robert, originally from Fallin, met Mary, who has resided in Clacks her whole life, at the Masonic Hall in Alloa.

Mary worked at Paton and Baldwins from when she turned 16, while Robert, initially a painter and decorator, worked at Alloa Brewery.

Provost Donald Balsillie met with the diamond jubilee couple and presented them with a card and flowers to mark their occasion.

Upon retiring, the couple have lived at their Tullibody home where they spend their time looking after their family.
