Golden couple share their joy with charity
GOLDEN wedding celebrations in Shepton Mallet raised almost £1,000 for charity last month.
The heavens opened but nothing was going to rain on their parade as Shirley and John Neale celebrated their golden wedding anniversary with family and friends at their home in Back Lane.
John's brother Bill gave an entertaining toast recalling how the couple made their first home together in a caravan with a motorcycle and sidecar as their mode of transport.
John and Shirley were childhood sweethearts from the age of 12, and married at 20 years old.

They had three children, Tina, and twins Paul and Tracey.
John did his plumbing apprenticeship with Melhuish and Saunders Ltd. It was while he was attending the technical college he made friends with Mervyn Robertson, a friendship that was to develop into a lifelong business partnership of DP Heating.
In response both Shirley and John wished to thank everyone for making the day so special and especially for their very generous donations totalling £855 which will be given to the Bristol branch of the Huntington Disease Association.
