Sidmouth duo’s House of Lords treat

PUBLISHED: 11:33 20 February 2012

A FUNDRAISING bout of Call my Bluff ended in a trip to the House of Lords for a Sidmouth duo.

Richard Watson and Sue Woodward made a trip to the capital after landing a special prize in a Macmillan Cancer Support Sidmouth auction.

The event, at Sidmouth Golf Club in December, saw Richard and Sue score the opportunity to enjoy afternoon tea and a tour of the House of Lords with Baroness Jolly in January.

“I had been to the House of Commons 30 years ago, but not the House of Lords,” said Richard this week.

“We were reminded that jeans were not acceptable and no photographs were allowed.

“We’d chosen a very busy day to attend as the Welfare Reform Bill was having its third reading.

“It was a most enjoyable three hours.”
