Pleased to see funds are available to lift Wisbech from ‘deprivation status’

AS a regular business visitor to Wisbech, I was please to read in your online edition of the funds being made available to the town to help lift it from its “deprivation status”.

Could I make a request that a new letter be purchased to replace the broken one in the Rose & Crown signage on the Market Place.

This is always a source of amusement especially when councillors insist on using this sign as a backdrop to their photographs.

I am reminded of the ever changing Fawlty Towers sign, however reading the latest reviews on the Tripadvisor website perhaps its more fitting to leave the sign “as is”.
