VIDEO AND GALLERY: Spectacular Wisbech Rose Fair lived up to its promise

ROSE Fair, Wisbech, drew thousands of visitors from far and wide to its annual display of colour, community spirit and costumes.

The sun shone and the town- both young and old alike- opened its heart and soul to afford all visitors a warm and generous Fenland welcome.

You can capture the essence of Rose Fair 2011 through the extraodinary images captured by Brian Purdy at elsewhere on this site.

Here’s a video that also captures the essence of the occasion.

Wisbech county councillor Samantha Hoy was out and about with a flip camera during the Rose Fair to capture some of its key moments.
