"Iwant to compliment you (mostly) young people who give up part of your Easter vacation to make this positive statement of witness to the communities through which you pass. Itis a hopeful and encouraging sign that there is much in this country to encourage us all despite the challenges which face us. When I put on Facebook that I was meeting you this evening it provoked a considerable number of responses, of people saying that they had seen you.

"Dear Wisbech friends, I want to also thank you for this delicious fare which you put on each year. I can tell by the look on your guests faces that they can’t wait tofeast on thisFen Fare. Bon apptit everybody and may yourstrength be restored for your entry into Norfolk."
