A DIAMOND couple who met over a coffee celebrated 60 years of marriage with a family meal.
Jenny and Ted Craner started dating after meeting at the Plaza café in Bromsgrove, marrying at All Saints Church on September 6, 1951, when Jenny was 18 and Ted was 23.
Moving to Redditch in 1968 so Ted could begin working at the Fishermans Catch on Grove Street, the couple, who now live in Greenlands, went on to have five children - Michael, Lynne, Nigel, Andrew and Alison, 14 grandchildren and five greatgrandsons.
Their family will join them tomorrow night at the Chateau Impney for a meal, having enjoyed a cream tea in Stratford on their actual anniversary yesterday (Thursday).
Jenny said at the time they met, Ted was working on the buses and had just finished his national service.
“I was sweet 16 and worked at the clothing factory in Aston Fields,” she added.
“We can’t say we’ve never had a row, we’ve had plenty, but at the end of the day you love one another and you get over these things.”
