FOUR women from Houghton and Wyton raised £6,000 for charity by having locals guess whose underwear was on a washing line. They did a quiz called 'Whose pants are these anyway?' and raised the money to refurbish a school in Namibia.

TESCO staff in Eynesbury and Huntingdon gave shoppers a bizarre sight when they sat in bath tubs full of custard to raise £2,300 for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

THE newly opened Round House School was the smallest school in Huntingdonshire with 10 pupils. The St Neots school was at first only attended by Karl 10, before he was joined by Emma, four. The school was built to teach 400 pupils, but many of the nearby houses do not have residents yet.

A KIMBOLTON man raised almost £23,000 for charity in remembrance of his late mother-in-law by cycling up a French mountain. Stuart Simpson, 42, pedalled up Mont Ventoux to raise money for a Motor Neurone Disease research fund.

AN armed robber was thrown out of the Ethnic Origins store in Godmanchester by have-a-go-hero Max Mobius, 33. Max saw a hooded man enter the shop and wield a meat cleaver. He told the would-be thief to "get out", and then threw him out the store. (Page 1, 17/12)

THE A14 needs some sort of sculpture along it to help identify the region, insisted a Somersham man. "East Anglia suffers from an identity problem," said John Wilkins, 68. "We want something that can be branded as saying 'This is East Anglia'." (Page 5, 17/12)

A BRAMPTON man aims to mark his 50th birthday in June by raising £50,000 for Help the Heroes, a charity that supports injured British troops. Terry Downing plans to lose around 50lb, complete a cycle from Portsmouth to Paris and then walk almost 50 miles.
