Conker time

BUDDING conker champions are needed to take part in this year’s annual Wisbech Lions’ Fenland Conker Championships.

Held on October 7 at 7.30pm at the Oasis Community Centre, St Michael’s Avenue, both teams and individuals are being invited to take part.

The entry fee is £5 per person and £3 for non-competitors and includes a sausage supper, trophies for men’s women’s, team champions and runners-up.

The deadline for entries is October 1. The popular championships have attracted many teams from around the area in the past.

It is designed to be a fun night with people competing in fancy dress, which is optional.

The aim of the evening is to raise money for local charities and deserving causes.
