THERE was a hive of activity at the Duaringa Hotel recently when the family and friends of Alfred and Florence Fuller (née Edmistone) gathered to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary.

Around fifty guests enjoyed the special morning tea and luncheon held at the iconic Duaringa landmark a fortnight ago (April 7) to celebrate Mr and Mrs Fuller's diamond anniversary milestone.

Mr and Mrs Fuller were married at St Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Rockhampton on April 10, 1958 and have lived in Duaringa most of their married life.

The couple's five children were all in attendance at the anniversary celebration, travelling from as far away as Brisbane and the Gold Coast.  

Mr and Mrs Fuller also have ten grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, eight of whom were able to be present on the day.
