The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens has recognised a Limavady couple who celebrated a very special anniversary this week.

Sammy and Annie McGregor were visited by the Mayor, Councillor Steven Callaghan at their home on Tuesday, August 15 as they marked 60 years of marriage.

The couple were gifted a bouquet of flowers and shared stories of their marriage over a cuppa with the mayor – even breaking out the fine china they received as a wedding gift all those years ago.

Sammy, aged 92 and Annie, 85, were married in First Limavady Presbyterian Church and went on to have two daughters.

The green-fingered pair enjoy spending time in their garden and looking after their grandchildren.

Offering his congratulations, Councillor Steven Callaghan said: “A diamond wedding anniversary is a momentous milestone and as Mayor it was an honour for me to meet with Sammy and Annie and offer my best wishes on behalf of the Borough.

“It was a real pleasure to meet them and to hear about their life together. I hope they enjoyed celebrating the occasion with their loved ones.”

The couple’s daughter, Rhonda Thompson added: “Mum and dad were delighted to meet the mayor and really enjoyed his visit, as it made them both feel extra special on their big day.”
