Jean and Eddie McMillan celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary.

The happy couple gathered with friends and family in the Barns o’ Clyde Hall in Clydebank to enjoy a great night.

Jean, born in Clydebank, and Eddie, originally from Kirkintilloch, met on the Isle of Man Ferry in 1947 and they married the following year.

Instead of presents, the pair asked for charitable donations and were thrilled to raise £645, which they divided between Macmillan nurses and St Margaret’s Hospice.
