WISBECH SOCIETY & PRESERVATION TRUST LTD
Wisbech Society and Preservation Trust continues working hard to safeguard the history and heritage of Wisbech, capital of the Fens, keeping a close eye on renovation projects as well as providing funding where appropriate: as with its contribution to the restoration of the town's Clarkson memorial, a landmark monument to Wisbech-born Thomas Clarkson who played a leading role in the abolition of slavery.
An active and effective civic society, the Wisbech Society and Preservation Trust also takes great pride in the commemoration and celebration of the town's cultural past, including its many eminent citizens installing blue plaques on several relevant buildings around the town. Membership is open to all, with the annual fee not only helping fund the Society's many and varied activities, but also allowing access to a programme of fascinating winter lectures and a series of exclusive trips in the spring and summer months.

QUEEN MARY CENTRE
Queen Mary Centre, Queens Road (Somers Road Car park)
The Queen Mary Centre is located in the heart of the beautiful Fenland town of Wisbech. It is a building for the community and has many spaces and venues available for hire and has been used for a variety of functions including wedding receptions, karate classes, zumba, youth groups, one-on-one counselling, NHS blood donation clinics etc. Even a church meets here on a Sunday.
Wisbech Rose Fair
During Rose Fair the whole town takes on a festive atmosphere, celebrating its horticultural heritage. The jewel in the crown is our magnificent church of St Peter & St Paul - which celebrated it's 900th anniversary in 2011. It brings together traditional flowers and exotic blooms for a breathtaking display.
There are also floral displays in three other town centre churches, each with its own particular theme and character. So there are four flower festivals to visit in one go!
Rose Fair began in 1963 when local rose growers sold rose buds in the church gardens to raise funds for the restoration of the church, which dates back to Norman times. Rose growing is still a speciality of this area and the flower festival continues to raise money to maintain the fabric of the church.

Staying SAFE on UK Roads in Winter: What YOU can do (Guide)
What to do in the event of flooding
According to the Environment Agency, over five million people in England live and work in properties at risk of flooding from rivers or the sea, whilst more face flood threats from groundwater, surface water, sewers, and reservoirs.
In extreme conditions you won't be able to stop flood water, and you should always put personal safety above attempts to protect property and possessions. Despite this, there are steps that you can take to keep water out, to buy yourself time to preserve property and possessions, and to limit the damage that flood water does.
