THE weather was unfortunately against the stallholders at this year’s Wisbech Christmas Market and shoppers were faced with rain for most of the day.
A “petting zoo” was one of the attractions, operated by Five Jays from Whittlesey. A face painter was another newcomer on the bill for this year’s event, joining about 200 stalls and other attractions, including fairground rides, bands and carol singers.
There was also a big craft fair in St Peter’s church hall.
As usual, Norfolk Street also joined in the fun with the Christmas event organised by the Traders’ Association.
Wisbech Mayor Jonathan Farmer unveiled a plaque at Rosalinds for Debbie Jacklin – chairperson of the Association – who died unexpectedly in June.
A free park and ride service was offered but there were still complaints from many shoppers about the lack of parking in the town centre.
