A FAMILY shows off their latest addition, 24 years after they first appeared in Chad as part of five generations.

Young mum Charlotte Hunter (24) gave birth to baby Noah in June, but she herself was the focal point in August 1988 after appearing in the paper as a new-born with her mother, grandmother, great 
grandmother and great grandmother.

But after becoming a parent herself, and since the death of her great, great grandmother Margaret Glasby in 1994, her great grandmother has now become Noah’s great, great grandmother.

Pictured above is new great, great grandmother Gladys Hutchison (95) cradling baby Noah, along with Charlotte’s mum Jane Gapski (46) and her mother, Margaret Palmer (67)

The family are originally from Langwith but now live across Mansfield and Mansfield Woodhouse.

Margaret said: “It was quite difficult to get us all together for a photograph because Janet works long hours but we do like to get together regularly, especially with birthdays, Easter and Christmas.

“We make sure that we get together - there’s quite a few of us the family! We usually go to The Hostess because mum really likes it!”

A history of longevity clearly runs in the family with current great, great grandmother Gladys still living independently in Mansfield.

Her mother Margaret died after reaching treble figures.

A recent five-generation story that appeared in Chad involved Sam Glasby, from Shirebrook, the father of a new baby boy. Sam is the son of one of Margaret’s grandsons.
