I was born and bred in the Wisbech area and spent the first 18 years on my life living in Friday Bridge - educated at Friday Bridge junior school- then on to the now re-badged Queen’s School for boys - after spending a couple of years in London - I have been living in Sydney Australia for the past 43 years.

We have visited the area various times over the past years - the last time being for the first WTFC game at the new ground.

At the end of July we are coming “home” again and with the advent of social media, having made many, many friends in various “Wisbech “ groups we have decided to celebrate our visit with a charity event at the home of the Mighty Fenmen on August 20.

It is not for people to meet me (I’m not that far up myself) but more for me to meet the many friends I’ve made over the years - also my family - having four brothers and sisters - many “offspring” have been produced and it is impossible for us to get around and see everyone so hopefully most of them will come to the evening.

I’d like to put a shout out to old school mates, sporting mates, ex girlfriends (lol) and anyone else that may remember me from my younger days.

Living so far away from Wisbech I have never had the opportunity of reunions and at 64 years of age, well there really is no guarantee of further visits.

The night at The Elgoods Stadium will involve a disco (7pm kick off) raffles - entrance will be by donation.

Julie (my wife) and me will kick it off with £100 and challenge those that can afford to equal it.

All money raised will be divided equally between the two charities named on the attached poster.

All are welcome whether you know me or not - the more the merrier and hopefully the more money we can raise. John may I leave this in your capable hands?
