IT WAS a double celebration for one Chickerell family with two birthdays on the same day.

Terry Coles celebrated his 80th birthday last Wednesday on the same day as great grandson Teddy Coles’ first birthday.

The birthday duo celebrated with a huge family party with more than 40 people on Friday evening at the Victoria Inn, Knights in the Bottom.

Terry, who worked for Bluebird Coaches in Chickerell for 46 years, has ten grandchildren and six great grandchildren, with another on the way.

He said it was a ‘lovely birthday present’ when little Teddy was born on his birthday last year.

Georgina Coles, Teddy’s mum, said: “It’s nice they can share their birthday together.”
