A woman from Edwardstone celebrated her 100th birthday on Sunday with, almost, every one of her descendants in the same room for the first time.

Other than her great-great-grandchild, who was taken unwell, all five generations of Flora Johnson’s descendents attended her 100th birthday party, a surprise set up by daughter Elaine Horne.

Mrs Johnson, who now lives with Mrs Horne, previously lived in Boxford for 26 years.

“It was wonderful, there were over 100 people there,” said Mrs Horne.

“She had a lovely time. Some people there she had not seen for years.”
