Laurie and Richard's endless love

In 2009 Laurie and Richard Dawson celebrated their golden wedding aniversary after marrying in 1959 in Mozambique.

The couple marked the occasion with a party at Formby Golf Club, Merseyside, where they were joined by sons Guy and John, daughters Annabelle and Mandy, and their nine grandchildren.

Attended by a further 100 more family and friends, the party went on into the early hours and was followed by a much-needed recovery lunch the next day!
