THIS hospital bed was pushed for about three miles between two Fenland village pubs on Saturday and raised about £700 for future events to be held in Wimblington. A team of eight people, in fancy dress and mainly from Wimblington Sports and Social Committee, braved the cold snap and pushed the bed from the Anchor at Wimblington to the Three Tuns at Doddington and back. It was the first time the committee had organised an event of this kind, and it is hoped the bed-push will become an annual fund-raiser for the village.- The village gala will run from Friday, June 23 to Sunday, June 25. Tickets for the gala ball, on Friday, June 23, cost £35 and are now available from Lisa Fisher-Cole on 01354 742415. DANCERS, actors and singers took part in the annual X-Factor show at March's Neale-Wade Community College."Celebrity" judges, looking suspiciously like Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh, along with the audience, marked the contestants.Beating the female opposition, T & D (Thomas Leigh and Daniel McAlister) took the dance award for the boys from both the audience and the judges. The drama category was represented by Years 7 and 8.Desmond's Dates won the audience vote, and a sketch by Small Sister took the judges prize.In the musical category, youngsters All Girls wowed the audience and judges. Singer Emma Whiteway was backed by Molly Butler, Charlie Manders and Gemma Perrin. Causing the biggest laugh of the evening were Village Idiots with their special rendition of YMCA.Winners in each category received £10 for winning the audience vote and a cup from the judges.
