People took advantage of a one day special free bus service to enjoy a town’s market on Saturday.

As part of the national Love Your Local Market initiative, bus operator Norfolk Green and Wisbech Town Council teamed up to provide free travel on the Route 66 bus.

The move was designed to encourage people to take advantage of what Wisbech town centre has to offer.

Those who made the trip to the market place were entertained by a group of storytellers and treated to cupcakes.
