Planning is in full swing for the popular Rose Fair which this year will pack the streets of Wisbech for the 51st time.

Meetings started in September but the committee is now getting into top gear with leaflets posted around the town ready for this year’s celebration.

Saint Peters and Saint Pauls church will be holding the 51st annual rose fair from Wednesday July 2 to Sunday July 6.

The floral arrangements will be as spectacular as ever and the committee say they are looking for sponsors to help fund the flowers.

“The committee would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to those organisations and individuals who have sponsored this event in the past and we welcome you to support us again this year.

“The new stalls that we have had for the past two years are a great success and stall holders are already booking theirs for this year,” a spokesman said.

If you wish to have a stall please contact the organiser on 07850-852222 as soon as possible as there are only a few stalls left.
