IT was a day when many nations came together - and it wasn't the Eurovision Song Contest or the Geneva Convention.
Last Saturday hosted a multi cultural food event at the Oasis Community and Children's Centre, St. Michaels Avenue, Wisbech.
Over 200 visitors enjoyed free samples of a variety of cuisine from all over the world, from a host of stalls in the main hall at the Centre. On offer was such delights as Moroccan chicken, Polish cakes, sweets, crispy pork, beetroot soup, Cajun chicken, French bread and brie to name but a few!
Apart from getting their taste buds tantalised, a Polish dance trop, Zywiec wowed the watching crowd, wearing traditional costume, they danced with enthusiasm and such energy and added a comical twist or two. Steel drum players, Octavius, bought a taste of the West Indies to the event that set the hands clapping and toes tapping.
For the youngsters there was face-painting, balloon race, quizzes about different countries but most popular of all was the pasta play. Large trays of cooked pasta that had been dyed were laid out on the floor for the children to, well basically, get stuck in and play with!
The event was organised by Wisbech Community Development Trust (who own and run the Oasis Centre), C&P Learning Trust, College of West Anglia and Fenland District Council.
The day was funded by Roddons Housing Association.
