DIAMOND couple Fred and Phyllis Ledger celebrated a special anniversary this week.
The couple, well-known in Mapplewell and Staincross, celebrated 60 years of marriage at their home on Kingsway, Mapplewell, on Thursday.
Fred, 83, was a miner and then worked at Gist in Carlton for 34 years before he retired, and for three decades has also been a committee member at Staincross Working Men’s Club where he’s now treasurer.
Phyllis, 80, worked for Co-op Insurance before many years selling footwear on market stalls around the area.
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
