Val and Terry Ballinger, from St Augustine Way in Daventry, are celebrating their golden wedding anniversary.

The pair married on July 13, 1963, however, the marriage almost didn’t happen in the first place after Mr Ballinger was involved in a van crash the night before the wedding. In the end he made it down the aisle with bandages on his hand, plasters on his face, and a stitched up wound above his eye. Val, 69, and Terry, 71, are hosting a family celebration as well as open house for friends to mark the occasion.
