I joined the large paid and voluntary team responsible for our victory in the Britain In Bloom competition this morning. We have taken Gold, and been very highly commended. Rightly so, in my opinion, given how beautiful our Town has been this year thanks to the tireless work of paid and unpaid people from across the community.
As a local Ward Councillor and also a member of the “Friends of…” Committee that covers the area of St. Peters Church Gardens, I joined many others for a photo call and mini celebration. Some hiccups earlier in the year resulted in a shaky start, but the team really pulled out all the stops to deliver in the end.
No doubt, despite yet another excellent result, there will be those with permanent upside-down smiles delivering their sermons of doom and gloom. But this is great news for Wisbech and a well-deserved national accolade for a lovely place to live.
