Willie and Jean Johnston who were married in Macduff in Banffshire on July 1 1961 moved to Seafar with sons Granville Rodney and Sean in 1968 but have lived in Balloch's Woodburn Drive since 1985.

Some readers will recognise William as a Clerk of Works for Cumbernauld Develpment Corporation and Jean worked as a staff nurse at Glasgow’s Rottenrow Hospital.

The couple will enjoy a quiet family celebration in line with restrictions and the Cumbernauld News wants to congratulate Willie and Jean on reaching this wonderful landmark.
