Great great grandmother Grace Corby proudly cradles baby Cole Notley as five generations of the same family pose for a special photograph.

Grace, 85, who lives in Essex Road, Stamford, was delighted to meet Cole, who was born on Monday, May 23.

She said she was very proud to be a great, great grandmother, adding: “Cole is a gorgeous baby and I feel very lucky to have such a wonderful family.

“We went to see him and his parents at their home and it was a brilliant day.”

Grace, who was born in Collyweston and has spent most of her life in Stamford, said she hopes to see her great great grandson again very soon.

Pictured in this family photo are Grace with baby Cole, sitting next to his parents Tash, 25, and Ben Notley, 23, with Cole’s grandmother Dawn Jakins, 40, back left and great grandmother Sandra Raymond, 60.

Sandra, who lives near Boston, said: “Everyone was delighted when Cole was born and we are so happy to welcome him into the family.

“My mum (Grace) lives in Stamford where she has been for most of her life but I live near Boston and the newest members of the family are in Spilsby so we don’t all get together that often.

“It was nice to get a photo of everyone with Grace at the top of the family and Cole the newest arrival.”
