Diamonds are forever

Posted: May 19th, 2020

DESPITE lockdown limitations, those two old Mirror hacks John and Barbara Jackson happily celebrated their Diamond Wedding on May 7.

Said Barbara: “Sixty great years – and hopefully many more to come.

“We celebrated in total isolation but enjoyed our terrace overlooking the Thames. Sixty red roses adorned our dinner table. In the evening we had a long Zoom with our four children and families (eight grandchildren), in Berlin, Bristol, Swansea and London.

“Our planned celebration river cruise on the Thames was cancelled, of course, but perhaps we’ll be able to enjoy that on May 7, 2021.”
