Cambridge News: Panto Article

A civic welcome was extended to brave soldiers and their families as they enjoyed a seasonal treat in Cambridge.
Royal Engineers from Carver Barracks, near Saffron Walden, were treated to a performance of the Robin Hood pantomime at Cambridge Arts Theatre with their partners and children on Sunday afternoon.
They were then whisked off for a lavish tea at the Guildhall attended by Cllr Paul Saunders, the mayor of Cambridge.
The event was organised and supported by Saffron Walden Rotary Club, with the backing of substantial sponsorship of Saffron Insurance Brokers.
Six coaches had to be laid on to ferry all the service personnel and their families.
Cllr Saunders said it had been “pleasure” to pay tribute to the engineers, who have playing a key role in bomb disposal in war zones around the world recently.
He said: “It was our chance to say thank you. It was wonderful to see the hall full of kids enjoying themselves.”
