Sir Ian welcomes anniversary couples Displays a larger version of this image in a new browser windowThe Lieutenant-Governor and Lady Corder hosted another in their series of afternoon teas for special anniversary celebrants last Tuesday (24 April).

On this occassion, guests included 6 couples celebrating their 60th (diamond) wedding anniversary, two couples commemorating their 65th (sapphire) anniversary, and one very special individual (Mr Brian Lyus) celebrating his 70th (platinum) anniversary. Unfortunately on the day Mrs Lyus wasn't able to attend but everyone expressed their very best wishes to her.

Sir Ian and Lady Corder joined all of their guests for a cup of tea and to hear all their memories of Island life, including hearing from Mr Brian Le Maitre how, as an apprentice baker, he had delivered a magnificent wedding cake to Government House for the Lieutenant-Governor's daughter and, until now, had not stepped foot inside since! 

Sir Ian closed proceedings by toasting all the guests, their extraordinary loyalty to each other, and their commitment to the values of married life.
