A group of I love Wisbech campaigners will be out in force on the same day as Halloween celebrations to ask people how the town can be improved.
The team will be in a gazebo on the market place to take answers and ideas to collate into an action plan for change.
Russell Rolph, of Support Cambridgeshire, said: “We all know that those who live, work and invest in an area are the best people to ask on what’s right about where they live, and what could be improved.
“This very notion is happening in Wisbech on October 27 on the day of Halloween celebrations.
“The I Love Wisbech Team will be in the Market Place engaging with residents, shoppers and passers–by about the town.”
The team are seeking views on three questions: What do people love about Wisbech, how could people make it better and what would people like to do about it.
Volunteers from the I Heart Wisbech Team will be on hand to take people’s views and thoughts, and will be encouraging them to participate in an art based project within a gazebo.

Russell said: “If you have a great idea on how to improve Wisbech come and tell us. We will be really pleased to hear from you.”
• There is currently a survey by Fenland District Council on whether people think their plans to curb street drinking have worked. The order currently restricts all alcohol consumption in three ‘no drinking zones’ of Tillery Fields, St Peter’s Church Gardens and the Memorial Garden in The Crescent. It also controls drinking across a wider town centre area. To have your say visit www.fenland.gov.uk/PSPOsurvey.
• The I Heart Wisbech Team consists of local community organisations and representatives from Wisbech Town, Fenland District and Cambridgeshire County Councils. Email Russell@huntsforum.org.uk or call 01480 420603.
This is the first stage of an engagement process which will be ongoing. A survey questionannaire will soon be available on line and will also through partner organisations such as the Ferry Project and the Oasis Centre.
