A special festive website has been set up so people can see at a glance all of the Christmas events taking place in churches across the Wisbech area.

For the second year running, Wisbech Churches Together have launched the site as a guide to the activities taking place throughout December.

There are already more than 50 events listed on the page and include things like live music, a Christmas tree festival, bingo, messy church, coffee mornings, make-and-take-away nativity scenes for children, a birthday party for Jesus, carol services and church services being held on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Posters have been distributed around the town as well as a large roadside banner that will visit several locations over the course of December.

Around 5,000 Christmas post- cards have also been printed with the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services on them that will be arriving through letter boxes in due course.
