Peggy and Henry with Great-Grandson Tobie 

A DENBIGH couple have revealed the secret to a happy marriage after celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary.
 
Henry and Peggy Roberts tied the knot on this day at St Mary’s Church in the town, and they have now reached the incredible feat of 60 years together as a betrothed pair.
 
The couple, who have three children, six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, celebrated the milestone with a special cake, which was presented to them after a family meal on Thursday, March 2.
 
Mr Roberts, aged 84, is originally from Ruthin and served as a member of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers in places such as Korea and Jamaica, before becoming a much-loved caretaker at Denbigh Town Hall up until retirement.
 
It was also a double celebration for Mrs Roberts, as she celebrated her 82nd birthday on the same day, and the former employee of the now derelict North Wales Hospital has revealed the one thing that has been the cornerstone of their marriage.
 
She said: “There is still a lot of love there and that hasn’t changed from the moment we got married.
 
“We have had good days and bad as every couple married this long has I am sure, but I wouldn’t be without him and he has made me very happy.
 
“We also have a lovely family around us which has made it all the more special.”
 
Now entering their 61st year of marriage, Mr Roberts added that he “picked a good one” and “talking to each other a lot” has also been a key component to a happy life.
