IN 1970, I relocated to Wisbech and life in the Fenland town was one of markets, historic buildings and a relaxed environment, but there was always a significant change during the renowned strawberry season.
The increase of labour during this period brought about a number of incidents in the town. But life did, thankfully, revert back to normality when the season was over.
Wisbech , being predominantly agricultural, is for Eastern Europeans an employment magnet and we cannot blame them for looking for a better existence.
Sadly there are some who come here and abuse our generous system but this also applies to a section of our own citizens. Immigration is not a problem affecting only Wisbech it is nationwide.
Immigration is now almost certainly out of control and the responsibility is in the hands of the Government.
Unfortunately, Wisbech is just another town caught up in this unstoppable deluge.
