The team from The Hillings residential home in Eaton Socon were delighted to celebrate the 60th wedding anniversary of resident, PJ Johnstone and his wife Sylvia, at the end of March. The couple, who have always lived in St Neots, were delighted to mark their special day with a celebratory tea at the home.
PJ and Sylvia met at the age of 14 and Sylvia remembers that the first present that PJ ever got her was a pair of football boots! They married and had two children; Teresa and Gerald. They have always lived in St Neots and would never move from the area as it is so special to them. PJ worked on the land for many years up until retirement. When Sylvia was not looking after the children she greatly enjoyed photography. PJ moved into The Hillings residential home in August 2017, and Sylvia visits him every day, where they sit and reminisce about their wonderful lifetime together.
Deb Wiltshire, Manager of The Hillings commented: “PJ and Sylvia are a lovely couple and we were delighted to help them celebrate such a momentous occasion. 60 years of happy marriage is a real blessing and it’s clear that they both greatly enjoy each other’s company. Everyone here at The Hillings extends our very warm wishes and congratulations to them both.”
