Meet your great great grandmother

Have your say

THIS happy family picture of smiling mothers and daughters is special.

Gathered here are five generations of women from one Bury St Edmunds family and 11-week old Daisy-Bow Pooley is being held by her great great grandmother, 91-year-old Joyce Banks.

With them are Chloe Peachment, 20, her mother Sukie Peachment, 44, and Sukie’s mother Valerie Banks, 73, who are, respectively, Daisy-Bow’s mother, grand mother and great grandmother.

Sukie said: “It is unusual to have so many generations together and it’s lovely. My grandmother says she’s willing to look after Daisy-Bow. She’s thrilled to have a great great granddaughter.”

When Daisy-Bow was born at West Suffolk Hospital, Joyce was one of the first to be told and Chloe, who now lives at Red Lodge, took the family’s newest member to meet its oldest member on the way home the next day.
