WISBECH nostalgia was the theme for this year's Outwell Flower Festival, held at St. Andrew's Methodist Church.

The theme certainly proved a success and the organisers managed to raise �1,800.

Angela French, organiser of the event, suggested the theme.

From cattle markets to toy shops, the idea was for residents of Wisbech to reminisce about the history of the town.
