Cleator Moor Beavers meet Copeland MP Jamie Reed

30 December 2016 12:19PM

A presentation ceremony for young scouts was visited by Copeland MP Jamie Reed, who delivered a talk on his time in parliament.

The MP, who announced he was stepping down from the role last week, handed over the awards to members of the 3rd Cleator Moor Beavers and took questions from the children and their families.

And the Beavers also held a carol service for the residents of the Wyndham Manor residential home and presented them with small gifts.

"He came to give a talk on being an MP and he also stayed to present the awards at our presentation evening," said Beaver leader Stuart Jeynes.

"He also heard that the Beavers have raised money through the congregation at our recent nativity in the Methodist Church.

"This money is being used to purchase presents and hampers for the Howgill centre at Cleator Moor, who in turn will donate them to local families."

At the group's recent nativity the congregation was asked to exit the church to view Mary riding on a donkey on her way to Bethlehem. They were joined by Cleator Moor Brass Band and Arlecdon School Choir.
