Twelve years ago, when Patrick O’Dell was mayor of Wisbech, he expressed the most serious concerns about the market place when he said: “What a mess.”
In 2012 Wisbech Town Council took over the running of the market place, buying it from Fenland District Council for £1, which included the district council giving the town £25,000 towards the cost of improving the market place.
The question now has got to be what has the town council done with that money, and what has the town council done to fulfil its empty promises to improve matters?
The answer is in plain sight – sweet naff all – it has actually made it worse.
Oh whoops, I forgot, it spent £19,000 on Christmas decorations.
