A Borders family came together for a very special occasion on Saturday, when twins Mrs Olive Davis from Greenlaw and Mr Tom Steel, now of Ashington in Northumberland, marked their 90 birthdays.
Mary Drover, of Melrose, daughter of Mrs Davis, explained: “Mum and her brother Tom decided to book into the Park Hotel in Peebles for the weekend. Tom had really wanted the Peebles Hydro, but it was full.
“They hadn’t wanted any fuss but we had a small family party for them on Saturday.
“Tom has no family of his own, but mum brought up eight children, and most of us were there on Saturday, along with many of her grandchildren. Two flew up from Southampton especially for the day.
“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!”
Tom and his twin sister Olive are pictured above celebrating with their family joined them for the party.
