And mum Charlotte organised a big Wizard of Oz themed party to make the day even more special for Holly.

Charlotte, 32, said: ‘We’ve made a much bigger deal of her birthday this year, because it’s technically her first birthday.

‘She doesn’t really understand yet, but she’s very excited about her birthday.

‘We would normally celebrate on March 1 but it’s so much nicer to be able to do it on February 29.’

Tina Cole, of Leckford Road, West Leigh, is also celebrating her birthday today with a slap-up dinner.

The lollipop lady for Front Lawn Junior School turned 64 today, but it is only the 16th time she has had a birthday.

She said: ‘I got a card with 16 written on it, which was funny, I don’t usually get things like that.’
