Diamond Wedding Day

June 20 was a great day for Mr and Mrs Charles Kimber of 728 Aberdeen Road, for it was then that they celebrated their Diamond wedding anniversary, They were married at the Keston Parish Church in England in 1914. Mr and Mrs Kimber emigrated to New Zealand in 1921 and virtually came straight to Gisborne, where they have lived ever since. They did go back to England in 1938 for a visit but didn't take long to make up their minds that Gisborne really was the best place to live!

An engineer by profession, Mr Kimber worked for a number of years in country areas. Mrs Kimber, who has long been involved in church work, is a member of the Victoria League and also the C.W.I. Mr Kimber (85) and Mrs Kimber (82) celebrated their Diamond wedding at home, with a dinner party arranged by 25 close friends.
