Tetford couple Alan and Janet Smith celebrated their golden 50th wedding anniversary earlier this month.
The couple, who met on bonfire night in 1962 were married a year later on December 11, 1963.
Janet said: “I couldn’t describe him, John’s a wonderful man.
“He’s my rock, he’s always there for me.”
When the couple married Janet was working as a butcher in Horncastle and Alan as an engineer in Spilsby.
“We’ve not had a honeymoon. I’ve never had a holiday in my life.
“I enjoy my garden too much and Alan loves anything to do with engineering.”
