LOVE blossomed on the dance floor for diamond couple Harry and Evelyn Hope — and it is still going strong 60 years later.

The happy couple, from Spencer Drive in Pegswood, recently celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary with family at Pegswood Social Club.

The pair met in Scremerston, near Berwick, where Evelyn is originally from, and carried out their courtship at dances.

They were married in the area, before settling in Harry’s home village of Pegswood.

Harry, 84, worked as a miner at the local pit, while Evelyn, 81, worked in a pharmacy.

They have two children, Evelyn and Beverley, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Their special anniversary was acknowledged with a congratulations card from the Queen.
