She’s our very own ‘jewel in the Fenland crown’ so where better for Miss Cambridgeshire to spend part of the day than at Wisbech Rose Fair.
Amber Twell, of March, has only been in the role for a few months but is already enjoying her role that includes competing shortly in the Miss England final.
But for now Amber is busying herself getting to know her home county and in recent days has seen her work with a homeless shelter in Cambridge and spent time with children from Chernobyl.
Her trip to the Rose Fair included calling in on many of the charity stalls that support the fair and also touring places such as the museum which are popular with the many thousands who come to Wisbech this time of year.
Walking around St Peter and St Paul’s Church Gardens, Amber delighted in chatting to - and posing for pictures with - charity stallholders including Facet which focuses on ‘ability not disability’.

She also visited the Pump Room where Wisbech Art Club are currently holding an exhibition, featuring portraits and paintings by local artists.
