Over the weekend Blessed couples gathered at the Milton Keynes Peace Pagoda to celebrate their 40th and 30th Blessing Anniversary.
Speeches were given by representative couples, including Tim & Doloras R., Mike & Fumiko B. and Tony & Hildegard B, with a variety of musical performances from the likes of Bernard C., Tom P., Peter G. and Andrew D.
A his and her game was played where couples would be given prompts such as “Who makes the best cup of tea?” and they would have to decide if it’s him or her in the couple.
From the Peace Pagoda, the group went to the Church of Christ The Cornerstone for teas and coffees and to have the opportunity to socialise with each other.
There were more musical performances from a string orchestra, Betty R. and David R., which allowed couples to get up and dance together.
The celebrations ended with a toast from Mark B., followed by the cutting of the cake. Overall, the event was a special time to come together and mark significant milestones in married life.
