50th Birthday party for Fridge

A Coventry couple invited their friends and family to a birthday party - for their 50-year-old fridge. Paul and Val Howkins Bought the Prestcold fridge for £65 in 1959, and insist it is almost as good as new.

"Everyone tells us to get rid of it but we don't want to. The Thermostat went about 30 years ago and when I took it to Prestcold to get another one the man said where on earth did you get that? They didn't even make fridges any more by that point."

Mr Howkins managed to source a new part and the fridge has continued working ever since.
