Having spent their early life on the other side of the world, Ross and Christina “Tina” Anderson celebrated their emerald (55th) wedding anniversary at BrendonCare in Alton, where Tina is a resident.

Tina met Ross in 1966 at a university dance in New Zealand. The couple, now both 75, were married by Tina’s father at the bride’s local church in Wellington. Their secret to a long and happy marriage is : “Tolerance – and marrying the right person!”
