HERE is just a taster of the activities on offer at The Oasis Community & Children's Centre in Wisbech on Saturday.

Deputy Mayor Councillor Jonathan Farmer was joined more than 170 visitors who headed to the St Michael's Avenue centre for the Community Fun Day event.

While those feeling active could tackle the massive climbing wall, others could relax and take on crafts in the creative area.

A model table top map of the Waterlees area created by pupils from Orchard School was put on display.

There were also demonstrations from organisations such as The Police, Fire Service and St John's Ambulance.

The Fenland Links Neighbourhood Pathfinder Programme joined forces with Cambridgeshire Police to organise the huge event.

"Everyone really embraced the event and had a great time," said Carl Suckling, from Fenland Links.

"Alongside the fun activities, we also managed to get across an important underlying safety messages with the various organisations involved.

"Older people as well as youngsters were attracted to the event, so it truly did bring the Waterlees community together."

Sergeant Dave Bax, who helped with the model map project, added: "The map can be kept and used for neighbourhood panel meetings, or for any other purpose or event.

"It was very obvious that the kids had put a lot of time and effort into creating this project, and were enthusiastically supported by Fenland Links and Cambridgeshire police."

The next neighbourhood panel meeting for Waterlees will be held at the Oasis Community Centre, at 7.30pm, on Thursday, April 24.
