Twins mark special day

A family came together for a very special occasion at the weekend as twins marked their 90th birthdays.

Tom Steel, from Ashington, celebrated the occasion with his twin sister Olive Davis and family members in Peebles in the Scottish Borders.

Olive’s daughter, Mary Drover, said: “Mum and her brother Tom decided to book into the Park Hotel in Peebles for the weekend, and we had a small family party for them.

“Tom has no family of his own, but mum brought up eight children, most of us who were there on Saturday, along with many of her grandchildren.

“It was lovely to have everyone together.

“The only problem was when I brought in the cake and realised there wasn’t enough for everyone as there were so many of us there.”
