CHRISTMAS MESSAGES 2012: Wisbech is a remarkable town thanks to the efforts of many
SINCE May when I became Mayor of Wisbech it has been my great privilege to meet many wonderful people involved in all aspects of community life throughout the town.
Their contributions, sometimes completely voluntary, out of view and often unsung, go to make our town the remarkable place it is.
This year has been an eventful year of which I mention only a few.
Wisbech held its first Arts Festival highlighting the rich artistic variety within out Fenland town and its wonderful architecture.
In June our Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations were held on the newly-acquired market place and culminated in the lighting of the Wisbech Jubilee Beacon. It was very successful and one of best days Wisbech has enjoyed for a long time.
