SOS for Rose Fair floats

THE organiser of Wisbech’s traditional Rose Fair float parade is urging individuals and organisations to enter this year’s parade.

The parade is organised by Wisbech Round Table and float officer Daniel Ball is determined to improve on last year, when only 16 participants took part.

The Peterborough Highland Pipe Band is back to lead the floats along with the Cambs Cadet Corps of Drums Band this year.

Also heading the parade will be the Rose Queen for 2012 and her attendants.

The theme for the parade is “The Olympics and Other Sporting Events”.

Lorries can be arranged for organisations who want to enter but don’t have transport and entry forms for floats are available from the Fenland Citizen reception at 11 Union Street in Wisbech. Please ask at reception for a form.

Forms can also be obtained from Mr Ball on March 01354-602884.

Mr Ball would like to see the parade up to 30 items including bands, dancers and floats.

Organisations who want to dress up and walk in the parade are also welcome.

The closing date for entries is May 18.

There are two parades through Wisbech on Saturday July 7 at 11am and 2pm.
