Dalkeith couple Ronnie and Margaret Halley brought in the New Year by celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary.
The Bridgend Court residents say it was love at first sight when they met at “the dancing” at the New Cavendish in Edinburgh in 1953.
Ronnie was born in 1932 at Throsk, Bannockburn, while Margaret was born in the Abbeyhill area of Edinburgh in 1933.
They married on Hogmanay 1954 at Gilmerton Parish Church and have lived in and around Edinburgh most of their married life.
They have four daughters, 12 grandchildren and have raised several foster children.
