A married couple from the United Kingdom has celebrated their platinum wedding anniversary (70 years) last month. Mr. and Mrs. Moscrop, who live at Ryeclose Farm, Ruleholme celebrated their very special day by having a family party. Plus, they are also looking forward for another celebration: Mr. Moscrop’s 93rd birthday.
The couple received their 2nd congratulatory card from the Queenfrom the queen of England whilst they were celebrating in their bungalow house; the first one was during their diamond anniversary. They received 22 cards all in all, an iced cake, and plenty of flowers.
Despite being from Orton Rigg, Tom Moscrop met Alma, his future wife, at Baldwinholme in 1939. Alma Moscrop, now 88 years old, said that she went to Baldwinholme to take care of her aunt who had a poisoned arm. That is when she met Tom Moscrop who lived across the street.
In 1940, the couple got married near Cockermouth at St. Michael Church in Dean. In 1954, the couple moved to Ryeclose Farm.
Mrs. Moscrop is originally from Ullock, also near Cockermouth. She said that it was really snowy during her wedding day. The weather was horrible and there were snow drifts. According to Mr. Moscrop, their wedding wasn’t really a flashy one since they didn’t really have any money in those days. Furthermore, he thinks that the world has changed nowadays. He thinks it has become worse.
Mr. and Mrs. Moscrop have one son who has four children. They also have a total of 9 great-grandchildren aged from 4 to 24 years old.
For those couples out there who are looking forward to their future weddings in Brampton, Mrs. Moscrop’s advice to young couples is that the secret to a happy marriage is maintaining a give and take relationship.
