Cousins’ double birthday bash

DOUBLE celebrations are common for the Clarke family of Denaby, and for Dorothy Clarke, it is natural to announce their good news in the South Yorkshire Times.

This month, Dorothy will join the rest of her family to toast the twenty-first birthdays of her grandchildren Shereen Gill and Nathan Longfield.

Shereen, of Staithes Walk, Denaby is the daughter of Sheena Clarke, and will be 21 on April 20, and Nathan, of Bolton Street, Denaby, is Donna Clarke’s son and will be 21 on April 30.

The two have always been close, said Dorothy, as they grew up together then entered similar careers...Nathan as assistant manager at Manor Farm, Old Denaby, and Shereen at Pastures Lodge, Mexborough. Shereen’s daughter Casey, also shares great-gran Dorothy’s birthday this month. They celebrated on April 5.
