It’s a women’s world in Crowland where a family of females can play their own version of the Generation Game after the arrival of a baby girl.

Little Pixie Ruby May Fovargue was born just 12 days ago to mum Jade Fovargue (22), making them the fourth and fifth generation of women in their family.

Pixie was proudly shown by Jade in front of great-great-grandmother Ruby Baker (88), great-grandmother Christine Fovargue and grandmother Lynne Fovargue (42) at Jade’s home in Crease Drove.

Ruby,of Gleed Gardens, Crowland, said: “I never thought I’d see the day when I’d have a great-great-granddaughter, but she’s beautiful and all our family and friends think so too.

“We’ve all been spoiling her and our Christmas together will be very special.”

Ruby, who retired from working at Perkins Engines in Peterborough almost 25 years ago, is mum to retired cleaner Christine Fovargue and grandmother to Lynn who works in retail.

“We were hoping Jade was going to have a little girl so she’d be the fifth generation of our family,” Lynn said.

“Jade also has a twin brother Scott (22) who, like the rest of us, was over the moon when Pixie was born.

“We’re all Crowland people and everyone lives only two seconds away from each other.”

Christine said: “Jade had the hiccups before Pixie was born and she’s passed it on to her daughter.

“It’s amazing that Pixie is attached to all of us already, just like Jade was when she was born, and we’re like Nanny One, Nanny Two and Nanny Three to her now.”

Jade, a catering assistant at Wyevale Garden Centre, Crowland, said: “Pixie is quite quiet and such a content little baby. But what makes it extra special is that she’s here, safe and well. Pixie’s our little treasure.”
