Hundreds of people flocked to Wisbech town centre last night to say happy birthday to the Queen.
The celebration, which included a birthday cake, lots of singing and the signing of a 90th birthday card which will be sent to the Queen, was very well attended, said deputy town clerk Susana Farmer.
“Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves.
“We all had a piece of cake – which really was stunning - sang happy birthday and there is still some cake left over which will be put out tomorrow for the St George’s Day celebrations.”
Get to the Market Place tomorrow (23) for Wisbech’s St George’s Day celebrations, which will include fancy dress, face painting, a free bouncy castle, Punch & Judy, storytelling and fairground rides.
