Wisbech Society members and friends will gather for one of their highlights of the year - a garden party in Elgood's Brewery Gardens - on June 24.
Between 6.30 and 8.30pm, they will be treated to music from Wisbech Grammar School’s Jazz and Swing Bands, as well as a
light buffet and glass of wine.
A Wisbech Society spokesman said: “There is no premium for non-members, so the party represents an ideal opportunity for those keen to know more about the society to come along and learn more while enjoying convivial company and the beautiful surroundings of a gem in Wisbech’s heritage.
“The strength of the society to drive improvement in and around the town, and secure the preservation of its most important buildings is directly proportional to the size of its membership.
“The results of the society’s most recent and ongoing work will be on display to inform and inspire – among them its success in returning Dann’s Clock to Wisbech, taking a leading role in the Wisbech High Street Project, creating Lambert’s Walk and helping improve the church gardens of St Peter and St Paul.”
This year’s annual weekend outing will be a trip to York on September 19-20. It will be led by Peter Clayton.
The society aims to visit York Cemetery and Chapel, which was restored in the late 1980s and has a similar history to Wisbech General Cemetery; central York; and Shandy Hall, the birthplace of writer Laurence Sterne, on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors.
Tickets are £12 for the garden party and should be booked with society treasurer David Crouch as soon as possible on 01945 475388 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
