A student from a college in Chatteris will rub shoulders with top MPs in Westminster after receiving an invitation to the House of Parliament.

Chatteris Community College student Ella Tilbrook has been invited to the capital to thank her for her work at the school’s library, where she volunteers alongside learning resource manager, Jackie Harding.

Jackie said: “Ella took part in a library activity in the town library and was a great ambassador for Cromwell by helping the staff to run their summer reading challenge.”

Ella received her invitation in the form of a letter from MP Steve Barclay, and will travel to London with her mum later this month.

As I come to the end of my year as mayor, I have been asked to help establish whether or not there is any truth in the story that one of Ernest Shepard’s illustrations for the Wind in the Willows has links with Ely’s historic courthouse.

Britain keeps its promises, particularly to those most in need. For 10 years, our commitment to spend 0.7 per cent of our national income on aid has been testament to that, and featured in all the major political party manifestos running up to the last general election.


Yet another election! This time of a local nature to appoint the “£770 million mayor” (Ely Standard April 20).

Gaul Road junction with the A141 March bypass has a bad reputation for accidents...but, there is nothing wrong with the junction if used correctly.
