SOME sang their hearts out, while others pulled off amazing dance routines. But they all had one thing in common - they proved that Wisbech Has Talent.

The performers had to impress a panel of four judges - PCSO Anne Rose; Ray Wicks of Etcetera; Dan Horn, head of housing and neighbourhood services at Fenland District Council; and Wisbech Standard reporter Tom Jackson.
This year's title went to a seven-year-old girl for her rendition of the song Castle On A Cloud, from the musical Les Miserables.
Lizzie Bryant, a pupil at St Peter's Junior School, also walked away with �15 of shopping vouchers for Etcetera.
Second place went to another singer - 11-year-old Chloe Phillips-Bartlett with When A Merry Maiden Marries, from the Gilbert and Sullivan opera The Gondoliers. She received �10 of Etcetera vouchers.
And dance duo Jordan Baines and Nate White finished in third place, receiving �5 worth of Etcetera vouchers.
Compere for the afternoon was comedian Kevin Venni, a contestant in last year's show. The crowd was also entertained during a short interval by singer Connie House.
But there was a special performance from the staff of the Oasis Centre. Dubbed Old
Spice, they dressed as members of the Oasis Day Centre and danced to the Spice Girls' song Wannabe.
