Why we aim to champion Wisbech, its good name and its reputation
MAKE no mistake- Wisbech is now one angry town.
From the town clerk to the Wisbech Society to the MP and to Fenland and Cambridgeshire councils the fight back has begun.
Its reputation sullied by a national paper, many in Wisbech say not only did the critics get it wrong but they ignored a town is truly alive, well and flourishing.
In a special report, spread across pages 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 the Wisbech Standard opens its columns to those determined to protect the town and to champion its good name and reputation.
And contained within the rhetoric is a minefield of innovation and enterprise- some that’s already happening, some that is yet to come and some that we can but only dream about.
