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.
