New bundles of joy arrived at St Helier Hospital as eight babies were born on New Year’s Day.

Parents also welcomed four newborns into the world at Christmas, and five were birthed at Epsom Hospital on the same day.

Sutton Guardian reader Sarah Phillips sent in photos of her granddaughter Maisie Kennedy who was one of babies born on Christmas Day at St Helier.

Little Maisie arrived at around 8.45pm, weighing in at around 7lbs and 10oz to April and Luke Kennedy.
