FENLANDER: Wisbech Christmas Market organisers pray for better weather this year
ORGANISERS are pressing ahead with plans for Wisbech Christmas Market – and are praying for better luck with the weather.
After suffering nasty conditions two years in a row, will it be third time lucky this year, on December 19, the Monday before Christmas?
Councillor Peter Murphy, FDC’s portfolio holder responsible for markets and events, said: “In 2009 we had four inches of snow and last year it was freezing fog. Despite that, thousands of people came along and had a great day.”
More than 7,000 people regularly attend the market. This year it will feature up to 200 stalls and attractions including live bands, carol singers, clowns and a falconry display. There will also be a big craft fair with up to 30 stalls in St Peter’s church hall, next to Church Terrace car park.
The Christmas Market is organised by Fenland District Council in conjunction with Wisbech Town Council, the Horsefair Shopping Centre and community groups.
