A couple who travelled from London to Windsor Great Park for their honeymoon 60 years ago returned to the park to mark their diamond wedding on Friday, April 10.
Anthony Fuller, 77, and his wife Eileen, 80, spent the afternoon at the Savill Garden after a surprise trip was arranged by their son David and his wife Riley. Champagne, afternoon tea and a special cake were laid on for the couple at the Savill Garden Cafe to mark their big day.
Churchgoers Anthony and Eileen decided to spend their honeymoon at Windsor Great Park so they could enjoy their favourite pastime of walking.
After marrying at the Baptist church, in Mitcham on April 9, 1955, they took the Green Line bus from Streatham and spent their first days as newlyweds wandering the grounds of the Crown Estate.
Daughter-in-law Riley said: “It was lovely to be able to retrace their memories from the honeymoon.”
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
