The Cray Family Robinson.
Five Generations of the Cray family Robinson celebrated Jessie Robinson's 90th birthday last Saturday.
The gathering of the clan came at a mass party at St Mary Cray Village Hall.
Mrs Robinson, of Derry Downs, St Mary Cray said:
"It was quite incredible. It was the first time in years that I had seen the whole family together. People came from all over the country."

Mrs Robinson, who has been a St Mary Cray resident for 46 years, said: "We all had such a grand time that we may do it all again next year. I had lots of lovely presents, including a musical birthday card which played Happy Birthday."

4 great-grandchildren and
But after all the excitement at the party there was no resting for Mrs Robinson on Monday: "I am much too young for that," she said, "I washed all the tablecloths instead."
