After a second vandalism attack in as many months, a local rugby club, the WRFC, has been awarded a grant of £320 to assist in making good the necessary repairs to damaged posts. The Club had spent money on quick drying cement, metal fixings, the hire of a welder, and acetylene kits which made a major dent in the Club's finances.
Councillor Peter Human heard of the damage and approached the Club Secretary inviting him to submit an application for financial support, which was approved under powers delegated to the Town Clerk (exercised following consultation with relevant councillors) on 6 July. More »
Club Secretary, Dave Dobson said, "The Club is grateful for the concern shown and support offered by Wisbech Town Council." » Less

Lisa Kennedy, founder and fully qualified tennis coach has organized a series of tennis lessons to be held in Wisbech Park tennis courts, commencing Thursday 16 July for five weeks. Three age groups will be accommodated at three different times during the morning, 6-8 years at 9.30am, 9-11 years at 10.30am and 12-15 years at 11.30am.
Each child that is signed up to the tennis lessons will receive their very own racket to encourage them to continue to learn the sport. Wisbech Town Council has supported this initiative enabling parents/carers to sign their children up for just £3 per lesson (£15 in total for the five week course). More »
Councillor Andrew Lynn commented, "WTC have worked alongside Lisa to bring this exciting opportunity to the children of Wisbech. It's a great chance for children to get out, make friends, stay fit and healthy, learn a new skill and most importantly have fun. I am very proud to support this and hope it's very successful". » Less
