Mrs Bayes paid tribute to her husband, Andy, who supported her 100 per cent throughout her three-year course, enabling her to complete her degree while working full time as a playgroup leader.
With a keen interest in art, Mr Paterson studied fine art and not only successfully gained his qualification, but met his partner Diana Stickley, who will also be graduating.
