Mayor of Wisbech Michael Hill maintained a centuries-old tradition on Friday evening as he officially opened the town’s annual Mart.

Cllr Hill and his party – who were met by senior representatives of the Showmen’s Guild – enjoyed some of the rides and met and chatted with fair-goers and Showmen.

He welcomed everyone to the Mart – which runs daily until Saturday evening on Chapel Road car park and the Market Place – wished the Showmen a successful stay and hoped all visitors had an enjoyable time.

Earlier in the week Wisbech Town Council hosted a reception for the Showmen and they will return the gesture in September when the annual Statute Fair comes to town.
