Wisbech Christmas Fayre & More
Yesterday I arrived. before the start of the Wisbech Christmas Fayre to join representatives of the Chamber of Commerce to visit all the shops who had entered the Christmas Window competition and judge the winners. There were lots of great entries but we decided in the end to give commendations to the two runners up; Cats Pajamas and The Wool Shop, and award the Winner’s Trophy to Sarah’s Flowers on Market Street.
I officially opened the Fayre at 10.40AM and then stayed to enjoy the Carols from several local schools. With all the snow it was very festive – and very cold.
I spent some time visiting stalls and buying things and then at 11.45AM I joined the Churches Together team and their Walking Nativity. Touring the town on foot and dressed in nativity costumes they sang carols at several different stops along the way, including inside Poundland! It was a lot of fun.
The Walking Nativity then joined the Salvation Army band and, altogether, we sang from the stage area to an audience at the Christmas Fayre.
Then onto the Sense shop, where I had been asked to draw the winning raffle together for their big draw, and to make the telephone call to the lucky winner.
At this point there was 20 minutes to snatch a cuppa, before rushing on to Rose Lodge Care Home where I joined residents and staff for their Christmas Party.
After that, I grabbed my DJ gear and rushed to Newton, where I was the DJ at their annual Christmas Party.
And that was just the daytime. :)
Busy day, very festive and wonderful to see the people of Wisbech and the surrounding villages enjoying themselves.
