As this is the biggest show of its kind in Cambridgeshire, it was important that the branch put their best foot forward.

SM Tony Webley, Branch Standard Bearer (second right), joins in the pre-parade briefing – “Look how white this glove is, I would recommend Pussers Hard any day!”

Judging from the amount of traffic to the stand, despite competition from others on display, they certainly achieved that aim.

The takings for the day, which will go to local charities, fully justified the effort which the branch put in on a eventful and memorable day.
