Reunion planned for Wisbech Centre to mark almost 60 years of students

FORMER pupils and staff of the Wisbech Centre stretching back as far as 1956 are being invited to a reunion.

The reunion to mark the closure of the Hortic Station will bring together more than 10,000 students from its opening to today.

Opened as the Isle of Ely College and Horticultural Institute, students there have gone on to become National Trust head gardeners and zookeepers.

The centre is now moving to the College of West Anglia’s campus in Milton, Cambridge.

The reunion is being held on Saturday, June 23 at the Elme Hall Hotel, Wisbech, starting at 4pm. It is free and everyone is welcome.
