Five generations of the same family came together to celebrate a special birthday.

Flora Pycroft - better known as Joyce - marked her 100th birthday on Saturday at the Clair Francis Care Home in Park Road, Peterborough.

To mark the occasion the great great grandmother was joined by five generations of her family for a party.

Bridget Young, who works at the care home, said is was rare for five generations of the same family to be at a party.

She added: “She got her telegram from the Queen in the morning, which was nice.

“She had a lovely day, with lots of her family coming to see her.

“We had a cake made at work for the day.”

Joyce was joined by family members Jayne Mason, Craig Mason, Clare Halliday, Sunara Walker and four-year-old great great granddaughter Alexia Walker for the special celebrations at the party.
