Margaret Oatey, of Eddie's, said: "We want to help bring the lovely people of Fenland together for friendship and chat in a very informal way.

"It's a drop in coffee morning so there is no set time to arrive and leave - we open at 10am and shut at 12pm.

"In addition, if you think you might like to become a befriender to someone with a learning disability, Vicky would love you to call in for more information."

The coffee mornings are between 10am and 12pm on July 18, September 19, October 17, November 21 and December 19.
