Celebrations took place in Wisbech when the town council organised its St George’s Day festival.
Mayor, Councillor Steve Tierney, said: “The weather didn’t let us down and was gorgeous. The event went smoothly with no problems and the turnout, after a slow start, was really good.
“Lots of families had great fun and the live dragon hunt proved as popular as last year.
“Thanks must go to the team of councillors and volunteers who organised, manned and delivered the whole thing. The Market Place was busy and the event popular and enjoyed.”
The day was used as a chance to set up a public consultation for the Market Place project, letting the public look at ideas for possible future plans.
Cllr Tierney said: “There was a lot of interest, and while different people had different views on some of the individual aspects - we did not encounter a single person who said “no” to the over plan, direction and scheme.”
Councillor Andrew Lynn played the part of St George while Councillor Peter Human was a dragon.
