WHEN Hereford businessman Tony Killeen made a successful bid at a charity auction for lunch at the Houses of Parliament, he decided other Herefordians should get the chance to visit the seat of Government.

The managing director of Whitestone-based allpay.net took Edward Penson, his wife, Ruth, Ray Trumper and son-in-law Ian Woodman to London.

During the visit, they had lunch with Paul Keetch, MP for Hereford, and had a tour that included Westminster Hall, the central Lobby, the House of Lords and the Queen's robing room.

The two families won the chance to make the trip after winning a competition in the Hereford Times.
