A WHITBY couple shared their secret to 60 years of marriage as they celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary yesterday.

Robert and Joyce Eastwood say it is a case of “give and take” when it comes to wedded bliss.

To mark the occcasion the couple are being treated to long weekend away by their sons Michael and Timothy.

Robert (82) and Joyce (83) met at the church they attended in Halifax where they grew up.

At the time Robert was in the RAF doing mechanical work and then worked in local government while Joyce was a housewife.

The diamond couple moved to Whitby around 20 years ago after buying their bungalow on Heather Drive.
