Gainsborough musician Ernie Allport certainly hit the right notes when he celebrated his 86th birthday.

Ernie is a member of the celebrated Room 21 Big Band, playing baritone saxophone for the ensemble.

But he had a date of different kind when he turned 86 recently as he celebrated the day by getting married.

Ernie and his long-time partner Christine tied the knot after many years together, making it a birthday to remember in many ways for them both.
