THE historic garden of Levens Hall was the venue for the Westmorland and Lonsdale Conservative Association Patrons’ Club evening hosted by Hal and Susie Bagot.

Nearly 200 members and many friends enjoyed a brief address from Lord Cavendish of Furness and Dr Ann Myatt, the Conservative Prospect Parliamentary Candidate for the Westmorland and Lonsdale constituency.

Dr Myatt spoke about the anniversary of the First World War and of the many current world conflicts, the need to maintain national defences and the improving economic situation.
