A WEDDING anniversary couple have re-created a Tenby beach on the drive of their home in south Wales.

James and Laura Fry - who were married in the resort six years ago - were determined to celebrate the occasion with sun and sand.

With the coronavirus lockdown scuppering their hopes to travel to the coast, self-employed carpenter James decided to bring the beach to his home in Croesyceiliog, near Cwmbran in a romantic gesture.

He used stocks of wood from his van to help create a seaside setting, complete with paddling pool and beach bar.

The couple's children, Ruby, 10, and seven-year-old Travis, put on their swimming costumes and dived in, while Laura donned her wedding dress to relax in a deckchair.

She said: "Every year since our wedding we have visited a beach to celebrate. James decided to make our own beach on our driveway, where we get the sun, so we could still celebrate and the kids could still have fun in isolation.”

The family celebrated to the accompaniment of congratulations sent at a safe distance from their neighbours, and even produced a video of the occasion.
