It’s a family affair!

Five generations of women gathered when Angela Hurse met her great-great-granddaughter Arabella-Rose for the first time. And two women from Patchway were a part of that special moment.

Angela, aged 87, lives at Meryton Place, run by Hamberley Care Homes, on the Bath Road in Keynsham. 

Arabella-Rose’s mother, Leilah Stevens, works at Lovell Place, Patchway, which is also run by Hamberley.

Angela’s daughter Lorraine Fox said: “Since we knew that Leilah was expecting a girl, we have been looking forward to a photo of five generations of girls, as it can be a rare occurrence.”

Angela lived all her life in Kingswood before moving to Meryton Place in July 2023. She has three children, seven grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. 

Angela is pictured holding Arabella-Rose at eight days old.
