A former Saint Margaret’s Hospice employee and his wife celebrated their golden anniversary on Saturday.

Robert Taylor worked in the Whitecrook hospice for 28 years, while Agnes was employed in Crawfords Bakers and the Clyde Shopping Hall fish shop throughout the past five decades.

The couple married in Glasgow Registry Office in 1970, after meeting at Yoker Social Club, and moved into their first marital home in Hume Street.

Robert, known as ‘The Moose’ by the locals who he shared a kick about and a pint with and was often found playing amateur football for Yoker F.C.and grew up in Whitecrook, attending Miller Street Primary School.

After meeting Agnes, originally from Possilpark, the pair went on to have two daughters, Rosemary and Ann, who they raised in Vanguard Street, Drumry.

Robert went on to work in Singers throughout the 1960s and 70s, while Agnes worked in the McCellar’s Butchers in Drumchapel, before moving to Clydebank’s Crawford’s Bakers.

Their daughter, Ann, told the Post: “They are loving and caring people, they are always there for each other and they are there for their family all the time, they love seeing and spending time with their great grandkids.”

The pair celebrated with a small family meal at home in Parkhall, joined by their daughters, grandson Robert and his three young children - Orlagh, Riley and Theo.
