An inaugural food and craft fair celebrating the best of Fenland takes place in Wisbech later this month.

The Secret Garden Touring Park, Mile Tree Lane, will be the venue of the first Fenland Midsummer Food and Craft Fair from 10am-4.30pm on June 21.

On-site allotment gardener and chef Danny-Lee Seeley will talk about what’s seasonal in the garden and what recipes to explore over the summer.

Laddies Famous Ice Cream, of Holbeach, will be serving up their delicious ice cream, while Deeping Fudge will be sampling their mouth-watering fudge.

Representatives from Wisbech apple and cider producer Watergull Orchards and Mile Tree Brewery will also be present and running tastings.

East Anglian salad producer G’s are bringing along samples and Paul and Maria Day, of Bramblebee Farm, will be there with their herd of pedigree Gloucester Old Spot pigs.

The event is not just about delicious food - there will also be the chance to discover more about Fen history.

Peter Clayton, of the Octavia Hill Birthplace Museum, will give talks on the history of Wisbech and the North Level Internal Drainage Board will explain the important work they do to keep Fenland free from flooding.

Last but by no means least, there will be the chance to come and see Vivien, Wisbech’s most famous fire engine.

An event spokesman said: “As our first fair we are keeping this to 25 to 30 stands – we don’t know what to expect in visitors but we are prepared with parking and staffing for an influx if it happened.”
