A PAIR of jet-setters are celebrating 60 years together by doing what they love most.

John and Doreen Jennings are today celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary and have celebrated by seeing more of the world together.

Having been to the likes of South Africa, Thailand and Canada during their 60 years of marriage, and they have marked this milestone by enjoying a cruise together.

Doreen, 80 told The Gazette: “We have been to more than 40 different countries during our time together. We just love exploring different cultures and seeing different parts of the world.”

The pair met when John was a student at Tylney Hall when it used to be a school. Doreen’s mother used to work at the school and on occasions Doreen would go to the school with her.

During this time the pair become good friends and when John left the school he kept in touch with Doreen, even cycling from Wembly to Rotherwick to see her.

The pair married on June 14, 1958 at the Sarum Hill Baptist church.

“It was one of the hottest days of the year,” John, 81 told The Gazette.

“I can just remember sweating in my suit and everyone just being uncomfortably warm, but it was such a lovely day.”

It was after their marriage that the duo started off on their journey around the world, only slowing down to have their two children Miriam and Ian and looking after their two grandchildren.

Having had a big celebration for their 50th wedding anniversary the Jennings wanted to spend their 60th doing the thing they enjoyed most and went on a cruise.

When asked what was the key to a successful marriage John said: “You just get to know each other better.

“As you get older you learn a lot about one another and you become one working unit which has common ground with each other.”
