Once again the time is fast approaching for the biennial Wisbech Society garden party in Elgood’s Brewery Gardens.
Always popular, this summer the event is on Wednesday, June 24, between 6.30-8.30pm, and includes music from Wisbech Grammar School’s Jazz and Swing Bands.
A light buffet and glass of wine or soft alternative are included in the price of £12 per person. There is no premium for non-members, so the party represents an ideal opportunity for those keen to know more about the Society to come along and learn more while enjoying convivial company and the beautiful surroundings of a gem in Wisbech’s heritage.
The strength of the Society to drive improvement in and around the town, and secure the preservation of its most important buildings is directly proportional to the size of its membership.
The results of the Society’s most recent and ongoing work will be on display to inform and inspire – among them its success in returning Dann’s Clock to Wisbech, taking a leading role in the Wisbech High Street Project, creating Lambert’s Walk and helping improve the church gardens of St Peter & St Paul.
Plans are also in hand for the Society’s annual weekend outing; scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, September 19-20, this year’s trip is to the fine city of York and led, as ever, by the enthusiastic Peter Clayton.
The Society aims to visit York Cemetery and Chapel, which was restored in the late 1980s and has a similar history to Wisbech General Cemetery; central York; and Shandy Hall, the birthplace of writer Laurence Sterne, on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors.
Tickets for the garden party should be booked with Society treasurer David Crouch as soon as possible on 01945 475388 or at email@example.com, and David can also provide more details on the York excursion.
