The sun shone over Wisbech as families poured into the town to enjoy a day of fun for St George’s Day.
The market square buzzed with activities which included a free bouncy castle, free face painting, various competitions including fancy dress, colouring and the annual dragon hunt.
There were fire breathers, a Punch and Judy show, jugglers and stilt walkers, along with knights and damsels and a storyteller in the shape of councillor Steve Tierney.
Cllr Tierney said on his blog: “I noticed that with the change in the weather there has been a change in the mood. People seem ready to let the sunshine in. Long may it continue.
“Thanks must be given to all the volunteers who turned out early to set up marquees and tables and chairs and display boards. To Veronica from The Angel who painted so many happy children’s faces, to the excellent bouncy castle and Punch and Judy people, to the very, very, very, tall man and the jester.

“To David Gutteridge – aka the Viking – who had the idea to do all this in the first place a couple of years ago. I’m sure there were others I am forgetting, so thanks to them too!”
