A spokesman said: "Discussions included the first visit outside of London to the Wisbech Corn Exchange.

"The speaker gave a brilliant talk and slide presentation on the years between 1960 to 1965, covering the music scene, fashion, films, politics and national service.

"Kevin was thanked on behalf of the members by Brian Keirman. The next meeting is on Wednesday, September 10 when Roger Rawson will talk on the old and new Wisbech."

The Grand Ball is held on Saturday, October 5 and is held at the Wisbech St Mary Community Centre.
