A DIAMOND couple have celebrated six decades of marriage.

Alan and Jean Poskitt, marked their 60th wedding anniversary with a bash for friends and family at Owston Hall.

The devoted couple of Epworth Road, Hatfield, married at Kirk Bramwith Church in 1951.

Mrs Poskitt, 84, originally from Kirkhouse Green, caught young Alan’s eye while she was working on a milkround.

Mr Poskitt, 81, continues to go shooting with his friends at the East Yorkshire Gun Club in Beverley. An illustrious career in the sport has seen him bag a host of accolades including four world senior championship titles.

The couple have two children, six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Mr Poskitt said the secret of the couple’s success was down to his wife.

He said: “My wife is very easy going and loveable. She is marvellous and that has kept me right.”
