Party marks big day

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Happy Birthday! -

Jack Mercer will be eight on Fe­bru­ary 29 but it will only be his se­cond proper birth­day.

Mum Ka­t­rina Mercer, 39, said: “Jack un­der­stands a bit more about leap years now that he’s older and he is very ex­cited about his birth­day.”

His fam­ily, who live in Shore­ham Lane, St Michael’s, are plan­ning a big party at Rol­ven­den vil­lage hall, com­plete with bouncy cas­tle, glad­i­a­tor du­els and disco, with and more than 60 friends and fam­ily.

The party will be held on Sun­day be­cause Jack has school on Mon­day, but he will be hav­ing a small cel­e­bra­tion on the day it­self.

Jack, a St Michael’s Pri­mary School pupil, who has two older brothers, Home­wood pupils Tom, 15, and Sa­muel, 12, is proudly telling his class­mates: “I’m eight but I’m go­ing to be two on my birth­day.”
