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.

Unfortunately, Wisbech is just another town caught up in this unstoppable deluge.
