EVERYONE knows what next Monday is, don't they? Of course not, well, it's St George's Day, England's saint's day, even though we don't celebrate it much.

Should you want to have a bit of a celebration the Soham Over-60s Club is having a lunch and entertainment at The Pavilion on Monday, from noon to 4.30pm.

The meal of traditional British fare, including wine, will set you back £10 (or £3 if you are an Over-60s member) and you're sure to enjoy it.

Contact Peggy on 01353 723491.

Unfortunately, there is a date clash on Monday. As well as the St George's Day meal, there is another event at the Viva Centre on Churchgate Street at the same time (noon till 2.30pm). Age Concern (why can't they call themselves Maturity Concern or Experience Concern?) will be there to fill people in on their rights to the benefits that they are entitled to.

There will also be advice on how to claim (and how to fill in those deliberately confusing forms, no doubt).

Oh look, the highly-paid beaurocrats at Shire Hall still think that Soham is a village. Best not tell them what we think Cambridge is!
