A COUPLE married for 60 years but unable to meet since last February because of Covid have had a tearjerking reunion.

Stanley Harbour, 83, moved into a care home in 2019 and wife Mavis, 81, was a regular visitor until the pandemic put a stop to their get-togethers a little under a year ago.

But Mavis has now joined him at the home and after a 14-day isolation she was finally allowed to see Stanley and gave him a big hug and a kiss.

Staff laid on champagne for them and many were in tears as they watched them share a toast before enjoying a candlelit meal.

Stanley even gave Mavis a bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates.

He said: “I couldn’t believe it when I saw Mavis. It was like a dream.”

Mavis said: “I was very pleased to see Stanley.
