Four long-serving members of the Wisbech Business & Professional Men’s Club were made honarary members at the group’s December meeting.
Vice-chairman Michael Bates welcomed 39 members and guests to the traditional Christmas dinner held at Mendi's.
The club then proposed that David Hodgson, Tim Gower, Gerald Harnwell and Brian Kett be made honorary members due to their long years of membership.
During the evening it was announced that Rick Wilson won the men's ten pin bowling. Dawn Blunden, meanwhile, won the ladies competition at the annual event which was organised by David Patrick.
The entertainment for the evening was comedian Martin Gold, who is a warm-up comedian for many TV shows.
Martin has appeared at venues including The London Palladium. He has also twice been voted by The Variety Club the comedian of the year.
He had members in stitches of laughter with his brilliant clean act. He was thanked by member Terry Hawkins.
