Moores still in love after 70 happy years

ARM-IN-ARM, Margaret and Harold Moores welcomed well-wishers to their 70th anniversary party on November 30.

For those of us unlikely to make it to this rare event, that's a "platinum" celebration.

Margaret and Harold met in Manchester, UK, and a neighbour from those early days was at the RSL Care Darlington, Banora Point, to congratulate them on the milestone.

The Moores have lived for 31 years in the Tweed, after coming to Australia in their 30s.

Margaret, aged 93, says she and Harold, 95, "fit in with each other".

"We kind of like the same things, like dancing," she said.

"We used to go cycling."

Their daughter, Sue, was at the party to help with the many guests.

"The couple are adorable and still very much in love," diversional therapist Kim Stokes said.

"They especially enjoy dancing together.

"Harold is an old romantic and loves to dance with Margaret any chance he gets."

Friends and family of the couple travelled from all over New South Wales to see them on their special day.

The Moores were given crystal champagne glasses by RSL Care staff and residents.
