A famous face and well-known antiques dealer from television was the guest speaker at a Women’s Institute event this week.

Paul Martin, best known for presenting Flog It!, spoke at the AGM of the Isle of Ely Federation of Women’s Institute which was held at the Wisbech St Mary Sports and Community Centre.

After the morning AGM and lunch, he talked about antiques, his life in television and traditional heritage craft to a packed audience of about 200 members from the region.

The talk, which was held on Tuesday (October 25), was followed by a question and answers session, and a book signing.

It is hoped Paul will return to the area next year to host an antique-style event.

Other well-known television shows he presents are Britain's Hidden Heritage, Countryfile Diaries, Make Me A Dealer and Curiosity.
