Wisbech Community Development Trust celebrates 10 years of owning and running the Oasis Centre, on Friday, with a six hours of activities.

The fun at the centre, in St Michael’s Avneue, starts at 2pm with small games, competitions and a tea dance for the over-60s.

The official opening is at 3.30pm where NE Cambs MP Steve Barclay will cut a cake.

This will be followed by judging for an under-11s poster competition, with the theme about litter and what you should do with it.

While the posters are judged, there will be lots of games and activities for children to enjoy.

For teenagers, there is a competition for either a poster or a rap about anti-graffiti.

Chris Stevens, Oasis Centre manager, said: “The reason we have chosen these two topics is to link in with the Waterlees in Bloom competition, which the centre is taking part in.”
