COUNCILLOR Jonathan Farmer, Mayor of Wisbech, visited stalls set up in the town centre on the opening day of this year's Rose Fair.
He met helpers from the Octavia Hill Birthplace Museum selling the official Rose Fair pink roses on the first day of celebrations.
Now in its 45th year, Rose Fair week is possibly the busiest of the year for Wisbech with around 150 coaches of visitors coming to the town.
They have already been enjoying the entertainment and beautiful floral displays as well as hunting for bargains on the stalls in St Peter's Church Gardens.

Rose Fair's busiest day, by far, will be tomorrow (Saturday) when the parade will be travelling through the town centre at 11am and 2pm.
But organisers have had to make last minute changes to the route and floats will now not go down Churchill Road.
