Hawkchurch farmers’ diamond day

Card from The Queen is a highlight of the couple’s 60th wedding anniversary celebrations

A CARD from The Queen added a special sparkle to a popular Hawkchurch couple’s diamond wedding day.

Family and friends turned out in force for a party at the village hall to toast Guy and Margaret Searle’s 60 years of marriage.

The couple, who live at Furzehill Farm, met at a local dance in 1950 and married at Broadwindsor on February 20, 1952.

They have six children, five grandchildren and six great grandchildren.

Both he and his wife, 82, were also heavily involved with the Hawkchurch Roses group between early 1970s and the early 1990s.
