A GOREBRIDGE couple have celebrated 60 years of married life.

Robert (85) and Barbara Rorrison (81) grew up together in the Dumfriesshire village of Kirkconnel but have lived in Barleyknowe Road, Gorebridge, for more than 40 years.

Mrs Rorrison (nee Adams) said: “We were neighbours so we’ve known each other all our days.”

The couple celebrated their diamond wedding with a family lunch. Mrs Rorrison said: “The day was perfect – the family was all there and it was a laugh a minute.”
