A couple originally from East Ayrshire have celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary in a Girvan nursing home.

Joe and Margaret Bowman are residents of Ainslie Manor Nursing Home, on the outskirts of the town and last week celebrated 60 years of marriage at the home.

Staff and fellow residents celebrated the occasion with them and made them a special cake on Thursday November 12. It was on November 12 1955 that Joe and Margaret got married at Barr Castle in Galston. They began married life in Kilmarnock before moving to Newmilns.

Their next move saw them back in Galston before they settled again in Newmilns.

Joe, now 85 and Margaret now 82 have been residents at Ainslie Manor since 2013 and are pictured above with their cake on the anniversary.

Congratulations to Joe and Margaret!
