Toyshop treats children who share our birthday
NOW we are five and look how we've grown!
To celebrate, young Natasha Hogg and Joseph Bond – who share their fifth birthday with Stroud Life – were treated to an extra present when we teamed up with the Enchanted Childhood toyshop in Nailsworth.
Owners Angharad and David James generously donated a £105 dolls house to Natasha and a £65 castle to Joseph to make their fifth birthday one they will never forget.
"Natasha is so excited about the present and being in Stroud Life," said her mum Kelly, 29, who lives in Stonehouse with partner Alan Hogg, 37, and their three-month-old son Ryan.

Park Infants School pupil Natasha was born in Cheltenham on March 14, three days past her due date.
Her late arrival coincided with Stroud Life's birthday and landed her the beautiful dolls house as an early birthday present.
And she met Joseph, who was born on the same day in Gloucester.
He was delighted with his castle said his mum Samantha, 32, who is married to David, 36, and lives in Eastington.
"He's a determined little boy and he's quite particular about things," she said. "He likes things done in a certain way and he will enjoy the castle."
Angharad, who opened the shop off Old Market with David five months ago, was delighted to help Stroud Life and the two five-year-olds celebrate their birthdays.
"We hope they enjoy playing with them for years to come," said Angharad.
The shop has an ever-changing range of gifts and toys with plenty of choices of gifts for under £10, traditional toys and party bag ideas.
