More than 100 family members reunite in Stratford

A HUGE family reunion saw more than 100 members come together from all corners of the globe.

Edwin Lewis Lane and Anne Elizabeth Lane lived in Preston Bagot and had ten children.

And their 28 grandchildren and families gathered at The Riverside caravan park in Stratford for a long awaited family reunion.

Many made an enormous effort to be there travelling from Germany, Spain, Cornwall and even Australia.

To mark the special occasion, a cake was cut by Thelma, one of the two remaining daughters of Edwin and Anne.

And an archive of over 300 pictures was displayed throughout the evening.

Grandchild of the Lanes, Derek Gruszeckyj said: “It was a fantastic, emotional, busy and fun night, with lots of ‘catching up’, dancing and laughter.”
