Five generations of the same family beamed for the Mercury cameras – and not for the first time.
New mum Beckie Greatorex, 18, of Two Dales, celebrated the arrival of baby Levi Mark Gilbert with her mum Tracy Gill, grandmother Angela Walker and great-grandfather Stan Liddicot last week. And it was a case of history repeating itself, as back in 1967 Beckie’s father Alan Greatorex was featured in the Mercury – for the same familiar reason.
The Mercury picture from 1967 shows grandmother Kathleen Greatorex, father Ray Greatorex, great-great-grandmother (name unknown) and great-grandmother Winnie Bone holding baby Alan.
Tracy Gill said: “It’s such a coincidence. We’re so proud of Beckie and Levi.”
