Vince Cable is first prize in raffle

Kew Ward held a fundraising dinner with Lord Lee at the Bold Hotel organised by Cllr Fred Weavers. A goodly crowd turned out to hear the man that was Tony Greaves's MP tell of his dissolution with the Tory Party-particularly over Europe and his prediction that this government was down and out.
Lord Lee won first prize in the raffle and took the signed copy of Vince Cable's new book-the closest thing we've had in Southport to a visit from Vince. Mike Booth took the initiative in getting the book which was most people's first choice (in fact I'm sure the whisky glasses started life in a Birkdale raffle and the wine glass set looked familiar too..-it takes you back to a time in the early 1980's when a bottle of wine from Israel kept appearing )
