The issue of dilapidated buildings in Fenland was on the agenda at a society’s monthly meeting.

Fenland District Councillor Simon King, the outgoing cabinet member for renaissance and conservation, spoke at the March Society.

He said great strides had been made over the past year in dealing with the problems of derelict, deteriorating and dilapidated properties and that he was confident progress will continue to be made.

The June event of The March Society is on Wednesday, June 4 at 7pm in March Library when society treasurer Stan Rust will share the history of the Middle Level Watermen’s Club.

The talk is £1.50 for members, £2.50 non-members.
