FENLANDER: Celebrating handover of Wisbech Market Place to the town council
SIX of the men who negotiated the historic transfer of Wisbech Market Place from Fenland District Council to Wisbech Town Council gathered there last week to celebrate the handover.
One other, alas, was missing – Roger Green, a long-time advocate of the switch who tragically didn’t live to see it finally come to pass. But there was a sense that he was probably looking down on them with a characteristic twinkle in his eye.
Together the seven men formed the joint working party that finalised the details of the transfer of ownership on behalf of the two authorities.
