Grandmother has been on Lytham-on-Sea holiday for 84 years

There's no surprises in guessing where Barbara Johnson is heading off on her holiday this year - because she's been to the same place every summer for 84 YEARS.

Barbara, from Macclesfield, Cheshire, has been on holiday with her family in Lytham-on-Sea in Lancashire for all of her 84 years.

She was first taken to the seaside town in 1933 to visit her grandparents as a newborn baby.

The great grandmother has not skipped a year since and even went to Lytham for summer holidays during the Second World War.

Barbara, a retired shorthand typist, said: 'We absolutely love going to Lytham. It would be awful to miss a trip.

'I know it is a fairly long run, going for 84 years in a row. I don't know of anyone else who has been to the same place every year of their lives at my age.

'But for me it's just like travelling to a second home. It's very 'olde worlde' and not rowdy at all. I know it so well and my parents even retired there.

'In fact if my daughters didn't live close to me at home I would have retired to Lytham with Dennis a long time ago.

'We make sure we never miss our trip!'

Barbara was born in 1933 and was just six months old when she was first taken to Lytham to see her grandparents.

She has fond memories of spending two weeks over the summer swimming in the lido walking along the promenade with her mother.

The family always stayed in the same hostel, where people would buy their own food and have it cooked for them by the owner, who they knew as Aunty Bertha.

Barbara said: 'My dad was always able to get time off work, and we would spend at least two weeks of summer there.

'I remember going with the pram to the station, getting the steam train to Manchester, and then changing to get the train to Lytham.

'There isn't much of a beach there so we always used to have sand and a paddling pool to play with. We went swimming
