The visit on Friday gave Mr Barclay the opportunity to hear first-hand from students as to what they want him to focus on in Wesminster.

Pupils also brought up the topic of leisure facilities in Chatteris and their ideas of how to make use of the vacant Tesco site; varying from a possible trampoline site to it being sub-let to an alternative supermarket supplier.
