The MP spent time talking to guests throughout the afternoon alongside Lion President Pam Tallon and Swaffham Mayor Jill Skinner.

Despite the wintery conditions, there were 80 guests at the event and they all sat down to a traditional Christmas dinner prepared by international chef John Hornsby, who had flown in from the Canaries for the occasion.

A team of Lions prepared the vegetables that were all supplied free of charge by Tesco.

After the meal there was afternoon entertainment including a table quiz, bingo, songs from the 60s and carols.
