DANCING is the secret of staying young for this full of beans Ipswich diamond wedding couple.
Peggy and Stanley Rust, of Lulworth Avenue, Ipswich, take part in three sequence dancing lessons each week despite both being in their eighties.
"You have to keep active to stay young," says Peggy, 80. "We both really enjoy it and my husband is a lovely dancer."
On top of this Peggy also regularly goes swimming and enjoys a game of carpet bowls.
It was in 1939 that the couple was first introduced by one of Stanley's friends. Three years later they got married at St Augustine's Church in Ipswich in April 1942.
Peggy said: "I have lovely memories of our wedding. It was during wartime so we didn't have much food. I remember I had six real flowers in my bouquet and the rest were made of paper."

The couple celebrated their special occasion with 25 family guests at the Marlborough Hotel in Felixstowe. Among the guests was a surprise visit from Peggy's sister, Pearl, who had travelled over from Florida to mark the occasion.
"It was quite a surprise. What a shock," said Peggy. "It was a lovely occasion and we both thoroughly enjoyed it."
