Country fair could be a ‘knock out’

ORGANISERS of the annual Wisbech St Mary Country Fair are trying to gauge interest in adding a traditional “It’s a Knock Out” competition to next year’s event.

Letters are being sent to businesses to see if there is any interest in holding the competition.

Danny Ogden, who is part of the organising team, has contacted companies who organise ‘knock out’ events about bringing the equipment and resources together with staff and a compere to host the event.

In the letter to companies, Mr Ogden says: “These events are great for team building and also really good fun but before we commit we would really appreciate your feedback and that of your employees.”

The aim is to attract sponsors and charge a small fee for teams entering.

“This is something completely different for our area and if fully supported, will become a permanent fixture each year in our Wisbech St Mary Country Fair,” said the letter.

Next year’s fair is in June.

Any businesses or organisations interested in taking part in the competition should contact Mr Ogden on 07778-193026 or email:
