The marriage that is 1 year older than the Queen’s!

Friday 17th May 2019 - 11:27 am

St Joseph's Care Home in Coleshill overlooks the beautiful Warwickshire countryside. It's part of the social work the Catholic Church offers through Father Hudson's care across the archdiocese in Birmingham.

Peter and Eileen Herbert married in 1946 and are now both in their 90s, living at the care home - although in different wings as Eileen has dementia.

But as we reflect on National Marriage Week, we can be inspired by their example - as their love is still alive and underpinned by the care that the home offers, with a Christian ethos at its heart.

Our regional correspondent Rachel Matthews went to find out what their recipe is for a happy marriage.
