FIVE generations of a Worcester family came together to celebrate Mother's Day last week.

Keen reader of your Worcester News Avril Rees - who celebrates her 84th birthday today (Saturday, April 5) - spent the day with her daughter Chris Grinnell, granddaughter Hayley, aged 42, great-granddaughters Megan, Paige and Nuala and seven-month-old great-great granddaughter Aaliyah.

Chris, aged 63, said her mother had been born in Worcester and lived here most of her life - barring a few years in Wales - and today lives a lively and independent life in the Brickfields area of the city.

"We take her dancing twice a week and she loves her bingo as well," she said.

"She always buys the Worcester News and shares it with her neighbour."

Today Chris lives in Fernhill Health with her husband Graham while Haley and her family live in Droitwich.

Mrs Rees also has another daughter, Wendy, two grandsons, Ashley and Scott, as well as granddaughter Amy and great-granddaughters Maddie and Lacey, not pictured.
