Tauranga octogenarians Bob and Betty Bissett today celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.
Mrs Bissett, 83, who lives in Cherrywood, arranged for a large chocolate cake to be delivered to Aspen Rest Home where Mr Bissett, 88, resides.
Originally from Glasgow, Scotland, the couple met at a local dance.
"He asked me to dance and I'm very glad he did. He's been a good husband,'' Mrs Bissett said.
"I just saw her sitting down there on her own. I went and picked her up and that was the start,'' Mr Bissett said.
They celebrated their wedding anniversary surrounded by friends and family.
