Bob and Kathy Land, both mid 80’s live together at Middleton Manor Care Home, Wantz Road, Maldon, were childhood sweethearts and they have just celebrated their sapphire wedding anniversary on Thursday, March 29, with help from their family and friends. The couple, who who married each other an astonishing 65 years ago on March 29.Mr Bob Land was 21 and Mrs Kathy Land was just 20 when they both said “I Do”.

They first got to know each other when they both lived on the same street as each other in Great Yarmouth.

Mr Land had worked on the railways all his working life and Mrs Land worked in hospitals as well as raising five children – four boys and one girl.

They spent many years living in Hutton, Essex and the nature of Mr Land’s job meant they had to move around different areas a lot.

The happy couple, who have seven grandchidren and five great grandchildren, moved back to Great Yarmouth where they lived for 17 years before deciding to relocate to Maldon so that they could be nearer to their family members.
