Statute Fair, Wisbech 2017
One of the enjoyable historic duties of the Mayor is to open the fair when it visits town.
The Statute Fair is in town and today, I led a procession of Councillors (all fully robed) and their families and guests to the fair, where we were met by a representative of the Showman’s Guild. As is traditional, a short speech was given and the fair declared open.
Then the children all got to go on lots of rides. (And even one or two adults!)
A nice mild evening and everybody had fun. I would like to thank the good folk of the fair for their warm welcome and for entertaining the people of Wisbech with all the colour and lights and rides and games that we all know and love.
