Julie Venner sent in this lovely picture of five generations of one Bexhill family.

Julie explained: “The photo was taken in August at my grandson’s christening.

The photo is of my grandmother, Kathleen Skinner who was 96 in August.

She is photographed with her daughter Mary Haslett, granddaughter Julie Venner, great granddaughter Meghan Catt and great great granddaughter Boe Catt. My grandmother still lives independently in her own home and is the most kindest, generous, wonderful person I have ever known.

I still remember days we spent together when I was a young child either sitting on Bexhill beach or walking along the old Crowhurst railway line with a picnic

in tow.
