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.Stanley Harbour and his wife Mavis reunited after a year apartCredit: MEN Media The pandemic put a stop to their get-togethers last February The couple marked the reunion with a champagne celebration
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.”
