Amy practising for her Big Moment in Wisbech on Jubilee Bank Holiday Monday

THIS is the face of a nine year-old from Wisbech practising for her big moment in front of hundreds- if not thousands- in a couple of months time.

Amy has been practicing the first two verses of the national anthem so that she can sing it at the Wisbech Jubilee Street Party.

She will be going on stage after the Mayor of Wisbech has formally opened the event at 12 noon, on Bank Holiday Monday June 4 to mark the start of a fun filled day that will include free music, free fairground rides for children; a free climbing wall experience for all and free face painters and a balloon twister.

Wisbech Town Council has pulled out all the stops to put on an event in Wisbech Market Place to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in style.

Wisbech Town Council has set aside �4,000 and Fenland District Council has contributed �1,000 to make the day really special for the people of Wisbech and the surrounding district.

Councillor Sam Hoy, chairman of the festival working party said: ‘Our objective was to make this party accessible to everyone so we have arranged to have free rides and events throughout the day, so that everyone can just come along and have a good time.

“The only thing people will have to pay for is their refreshments, and anything they buy on the stalls – everything else will be free all day. Please join us for a fun day.”
