Three Burnham-On-Sea couples celebrate 150 years of married life!

Corks were popping when three married couples from Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge jointly celebrated their golden wedding anniversaries at a special party to mark the occasion.

Pat and Ray Fletcher; Geoff and Sheila Amesbury; and Les and Shelagh Fautley.The trio, who are all members of the Burnham Moose group, discovered they were celebrating their 50th anniversaries in the same part of 2005.

To accommodate their wide circle of friends, they decided to hold a joint celebration in Highbridge Community Hall.

Additionally, they asked for cash donations in lieu of presents, the proceeds have been handed over to the Burnham and Highbridge Stroke Club.

The resulting £250 was handed over to the stroke club at a presentation on Tuesday evening, December 20th.

Stroke Club Chairman Alan Massingham said: "We are very grateful for this generous donation, and the money will be put to good use running the stroke club."
