Members of Wisbech & Meadowgate Volunteer Police Cadets visited residents at Glennfield Care Home in Wisbech last week.

They spent time sitting with the residents and also talked about some of the great things the cadets have been doing.

A great time was had by all said a spokesman for the police cadets group.

The Meadowgate Police Cadets are also regular visitors to the Oasis Day Club in Wisbech, providing afternoon tea and playing bingo with residents.

During one visit last year they brought cakes and played ‘curling’ in the hall with club members, playing in teams.

In March 2017 seventeen cadets from the two groups and five leaders were given a national award. They attended an event at Buckingham Palace and were presented with the award in front of more than 300 guests, including The Prince of Wales.
