' Royalist Sheila Jones was over the moon when she received a card from the Queen marking her and her husband Ken's 60th wedding anniversary. Ken was a bit more suspicious about how the royal family, New Zealand's prime minister and the Internal Affairs Department all knew it was their diamond anniver- sary on August 1. He suspected one of their two children or five grand- children may have let the cat out of the bag. Sixty years ago today the couple and associated family gathered at the church of St John the Evangelist at Boscombe, a suburb of Bourne- mouth on the south coast of England, to get married. They charged us to ring the bells. But when I looked up there was a speaker,'' said Ken. It was 1953. Within nine years the couple and their three young chil- dren were New Zealand bound on the steamer Canberra. We lived in Wembley and Ken worked in Victoria. It was about a two-hour trip each way. He came home one night sick and tired of the travelling and despaired at what we could do. I suggested we emigrate,'' Sheila said. So they did. Ken wrote to 20 print- ing companies in New Zealand, got replies from three and picked a firm in New Plymouth. I thought it was a very old fashioned town,'' Sheila said. There were even hitching rails in town for the horses. But it was a great place to raise children.'' Sheila worked part time in the hospital and Ken at the printer's until the tragic death of one of their sons saw them up stakes and move to Paihia with their two children where they stayed for 19 years before shifting to Richmond, where their children and their families live today. Sheila is in charge of festivities. The family are coming for lunch on Thursday and we'll have a couple of bottles of wine. On Friday the gaggle will go out for a meal and on Saturday we'll have a tea party here with bubbles and things.''
