The Cambs Times has been given two tickets for Christmas dinner with the March Armed Forces Club at Cassanos, March.

The club usually meet the first Saturday of the month for breakfast at the High Street bar/restaurant, to talk about their time spent in the armed forces.

More than 80 veterans attend to support each other and tell stories of their past in a warm and welcoming environment.

Former mayor Andrew Pugh, who set up the initiative in April this year, said: "It's a great place for those who have served to meet and shed a light on their stories with people who have been through the same thing.

"At the breakfast club they also get tea, coffee and an all you can eat breakfast.

"Cassanos will kindly be doing Christmas lunch for us too at a reduced cost, so we wanted to welcome two other guests via this competition to join us and celebrate too."

The Christmas meal is set to take place on December 7 from 12noon. There will be wine and other refreshments available on the tables.

Live music will come from Chris Elliott.

Two winners will chosen at random for the Christmas meal, and be able to collect a voucher from the Cambs Times offices (opposite Cassanos).
