After shave, wallets and cufflinks are Christmas presents to avoid for one family in Crowland made up of five generations of women.

Great-great grandmother Ruby Baker (89) is looking forward to sharing gifts with her daughter Christine Fovargue (64), granddaughter Lynne Fovargue (43) and great-grandaughter Jade Fovargue (23).

But the centre of attention will be Jade’s daughter Pixie Fovargue (one) who will be enjoying the excitement of her second Christmas with mum, nanny, great-nanny and great-great-nanny.

Pixie was born in November 2014 and christened at Crowland Abbey in April when she wore the same dress Jade wore for her christeningg.

Grandmother Lynne said: “Pixie’s very much like her mum in every way, except that she’s very mischievous whereas Jade wasn’t.

“Little Pixie has been up onto the Christmas tree to get the chocolates and she likes to play along with a singing Santa we’ve got.”

I never thought I’d be a great-great nan and I’m quite proud of it

Jade, a sales assistant at a pharmacy in Spalding, said: “Pixie’s opened some of her presents already as she doesn’t understand Christmas at her age yet and my brother is looking around to buy more presents for her.”

Ruby said: “I never thought I’d be a great-great nan and I’m quite proud of it.”

Christine added: “Pixie’s our little world and we’re all very excited about spoiling her for Christmas.”
