TWO Sale pensioners have found happiness together - after years of dedicating themselves to looking after their elderly mothers.

Eighty-year-old David Hall and Jean Frost, aged 69, tied the knot at the Church of the Nazarene, Wendover Road, Brooklands.

Jean's daughter, Lucy, gave her away at the ceremony on December 1.

Retired music teacher Jean said: "It was a wonderful day, there was such a lovely atmosphere."

David had spent many years looking after his mother, Myra - the oldest person in Trafford - at their Dane Road home until she died in 2014, aged 107.

Jean took early retirement to care for her mother, Jessie, who suffered dementia and died in 2009.

The couple met at Sale Conservative Club and Jean said of the retired salesman: "He certainly used his sales charm on me."

Jean, who has been divorced from her first husband for 36 years, continued:"Our love has grown and grown even since our marriage.

"I can recommend it to anyone, it shows you should never give up hope.

"It has been a wonderful surprise, it has been heaven sent."

Jean composed a hymn, 'Father, Son and Holy spirit, We give glory to you' for the service. Jane and David sang the hymn, as Jean played piano.

Jean said: "That was a real highlight."

The reception was a the church hall, and as it does not have a drinks licence the guests did not have any alcohol.

But Jean said it did not put a dampener on the day: "Everyone really enjoyed it - and they all could remember the day."

Sports lover David, who has been a member of Brooklands Sports Club for more than 60 years , said: "I feel happy we have got married and I finally have a partner."
