FGA Extravaganza Performance
Tonight I watched the Fenland Gynmastics Academy’s big show.
I watched a huge number of incredibly talented and skilled young people; ages ranging from not much more than one or two right up to teenagers – just blow the audience away.
A spectacularly colourful and vibrant performance, confident and powerful, sizzling the crowd with one jaw-dropping team after another.
The Fenland Gymnastics Academy is a sparkling gem in the town’s crown. An inspirational parade of some of the best young people you could ever hope to see, displaying the results of hard work and dedication, natural gifts and learned skills.
I thought they could not top last year’s show, but they really did. Incredible. The staff, helpers and organisers are amazing. The parents should all be immensely proud – and I could tell they were.
My Wife and I were just utterly dazzled by it all. Thank you so much. A really proud moment for Wisbech and we were thrilled by every second of it.
March Mayor’s Ball
Nightmayor Winter Ale
Just for fun I have commissioned a Mayoral Beer from Elgoods’.
This rather special ale should be available shortly in The Angel, the King’s Head and the Three Tuns. I’d like to thank these pubs for allowing me to run a charity beer for a month or so.
7.5% @ £2.50 a pint.
I have paid for the ale from my own pocket, not from any Council or Mayoral funds. (Before anybody gets uppity!) :)
I started the day with the Very Merry Christmas Show, put on by the Nine Lives Theater Company at the Institute. I caught the morning show and what a brilliant way to start the day. My Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the entertaining spectacle which featured dancing, singing and an amusing plot and characters. All performed absolutely flawlessly by the Nine Lives Team, who just seem to go from strength to strength.
Today has been a mammoth day for Mayoral things.
I was off this morning delivering leaflets across North Ward / Waterlees to remind residents of our Councillor’s Coffee Morning at the Oasis Center. I was joined by most of the Conservative North Ward team and a bunch of residents with issues they’d like resolved, and ideas they’d like to share. We drank quite a lot of coffee and it was a useful way to meet with residents and get their views and concerns.
Then, on with my “Mayor hat.”
This afternoon I visited the St. Augustines Day Care Centre for their Christmas Carols and Afternoon Tea. We were entertained by some excellent singers from the Walsoken Church and a very nice time was had. I always enjoy spending time with the St Augustine’s gang, lots of laughs and merriment.
I had to leave before the end in order to make the Magdalene House Christmas Service at St. Peters’, where the children were responsible for most of the singing and bible readings. Proud parents watched on and, I am sure, had just as lovely a time as I did.
There is always so much happening in Wisbech, but never more so than Christmas!
A quick drive to March followed, where I switched hats again and attended the last FDC Full Council meeting of the year. A fairly straightforward agenda was cleared in short order and that’s it for FDC for 2017! Since CCC had its last Full Council meeting on Tuesday that means we only have next Monday’s Town Council meeting to go and then it’s holiday time! For a few days anyway.
