Nosher's Great Uncle James celebrates his 90th birthday with an unprecendented gathering of the clans at the Village Hotel on the outskirts of Cheadle Hulme in Manchester. As well as about a hundred relatives that Nosher's never even met, there's also the Geneva massive, the South Coast contingent and Grandad.
