Just Ballet – New Dance Studio

Just Ballet – New Dance Studio

I paid a visit to Just Ballet, a thriving small business in Wisbech, today.
 
Just Ballet opened last year on Hill Street, but quickly found they needed to expand and have moved onto the Nene Quay. Their new shop is much bigger and jam-packed with everything somebody interested in ballet could ever need.
 
It’s always great to see businesses in Wisbech doing well, but the team here have gone a step further and have converted the loft of the old building into an incredible dance studio, where a ballet school is being started.
 
It was great to meet the people who have worked so hard turning a fairly dilapidated building into such an amazing space. The work done is incredible and the excitement and passion of those involved is palpable.
 
I expect to see amazing things coming from Just Ballet and their dance school in future years and look forward to watching them go from strength to strength, becoming a champion for young people who want to do ballet into the future.
 

St Augustine’s Heritage And Poppy Weekend

St Augustine’s Heritage And Poppy Weekend

Today it was my honour to be invited to the St Augustine’s Church 2017 Heritage and Poppy weekend.

Please take the time to go along to St. Augustine’s Church today if you are able.

This is their Heritage and Poppy Weekend and there is an exhibition in the church in commemoration and remembrance of our heroes of World War One.

The exhibition focuses on the Battle of Passchendale along with the history of men from Wisbech who died in the Great War.

It really is an exceptional, poignant and respectful exhibition which is well worth a visit to learn about the town’s heroes and their history and to remember those who have fallen.

The church is open until 4PM.
