A KIRKCALDY couple who met at a former Fife newspaper have celebrated their golden wedding anniversary.
Alex (75) and Helen Hird (74) toasted the special milestone on March 25 by having a family meal at the Victoria Hotel in the town.
The couple first met when Alex was a printer at the ‘Fifeshire Advertiser’ and Helen worked in the office.
They were married at the West End Congregational Church in Kirkcaldy on March 25, 1961. The Fifeshire Advertiser was bought by the Fife Free Press group in 1966 - Alex remained with the company and Helen, who left to have their two daughters Jackie and Gillian, returned to work in the accounts department.
They remained at the Press until they retired.
Alex and Helen have four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
