Held in the garden of Alan and Lisa Hobbs, the special guest was North East Cambs MP and Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay who answered questions and updated the local membership about political developments.

Mayor of Whittlesey Julie Windle said: "We had about 50 members and supporters attend. We raised over £540 for conservative funds.

"We were very pleased to have Steve give up some of his valuable time on the weekend and he spoke about the current political situation and answered questions."
