A Suffolk family has celebrated a rare get-together of all five female generations, whose ages span from two months to approaching 100.
Proud great-grandfather Barry Eagle took a photo of the recent family gathering.
Mr Eagle said that although the family live near to one another in east Suffolk they rarely have the chance to meet all at once.
“It’s lovely to have these moments when we can all catch up,” he added.
“I came from a family of 12 and my wife Lynda came from a family of 10.”
The latest addition to the family is two-month-old Mia Marie Cattermole, born to parents Laura Bowmer, 25, and Daryl Cattermole.
Other family members representing the five female generations at the gathering were grandmother Naomi Gates, 47, great-grandmother Lynda Eagle, 64, and great-great grandmother Cath Cook, who is 99-years-old and will celebrate her 100th birthday in January.
