The Chatteris branch of the women’s section of the Royal British Legion (RBL) returned from their national conference in Eastbourne with what they said was a magnificent haul of silverware.

Chairman, Jan Baynes, attended as standard bearer and Anne Wells, vice-chairman, was delegate.

During the conference they had a stall selling chocolates, shopping bags, china mugs and sweets raising more than £350.

Both ladies were kept on their toes as they did several circuits of the conference room to receive six awards on behalf of the members.
