More than 300 visit Whittlesey Travel’s Greater Peterborough Holiday Show

MORE than 300 people were on the lookout for a cheap break when a Fenland travel agency staged the Greater Peterborough Holiday Show.

The Ivy Leaf Club, in Whittlesey, was the first destination for potential holidaymakers on Saturday when Whittlesey Travel, tour operators and exhibitors offered UK breaks, escorted tours and honeymoons.

Popular breaks included bus trips, skiing holidays and round the world tours were also on offer.

In addition there was a prize draw of a weekend break for two as well as bottles of champagne to get people in the holiday mood despite the January blues.

Sarah Langford, director of Whittlesey Travel, said: “Every stand was busy and covered a wide range of holidays.
