Elderly couple celebrate anniversary with Isle of Wight holiday

An elderly couple have told how they got a surprise during their Isle of Wight holiday, when they were called up to dance by the DJ in their hotel.

Charlie Cork, 90 and his wife, Olive, 88, have been dancing together since they married in 1941, reports the Epping Forest Guardian.

In order to mark their 70th wedding anniversary, the pair booked an Isle of Wight holiday and got a surprise when their dance teacher Margaret Gander called their hotel to arrange them to dance in front of the other guests.

"She told the DJ and we were called on to the dance floor for a waltz in front of about 450 people," said Mr Cork. "I managed about half of it."

Mrs Cork stated that dancing together regularly was the secret to their long and happy marriage.

The Isle of Wight County Press recently reported that Kate Middleton and Prince William enjoyed an Isle of Wight holiday following their recent wedding at Westminster Abbey.
