Should We Really Be That Thankful – Wisbech-Wisbech-Wisbech

Here we go again, years and years, all I have heard is how hard-done-by the poor people of Wisbech are.
In that case I truly feel very sorry for them and all the hardships they have had to endure.
(I met on several occasions the ex conservative councillor David Wheeler in the Waterlees area)
The latest I have received – see below…Is that there is to be a ‘New Police Station’ in Wisbech and the PCC is seeking public view…

Good morning
Police and Crime Commissioner, Jason Ablewhite is asking local residents to come along to a public meeting on Monday 27th November in Wisbech.

The Commissioner would like to discuss plans for a new Police Station in Wisbech with members of the local community before undertaking the formal application process.
Superintendent Andy Gipp from Cambridgeshire Constabulary will also be present.
The event will be held in Wisbech Town Hall Council Chamber between 7pm and 9pm on Monday 27th November and is open to all Wisbech residents.

Early this week our ‘astute’ MP Steve Barclays was complaining about the possible ‘loss’ of funding for the proposed Wisbech to March Rail link.
The MP broke his silence on the study after failing to persuade council chiefs to pull the report that warns residents if they don’t approve the draft preferred strategy then £10.5 million allocated for transport infrastructure in the town would be lost.

“We are on the verge of great opportunity or great failure,” he said.
“My constituents are being told that if they do not vote for this package in its entirety we lose £10.5 million allocated to Wisbech. That is factually incorrect.”

Then there are a raft of other initiatives (Some European Money should it ever happen) ALL for Wisbech. Again the potential is for Millions.

I am truly very thankful for those who have pushed for 40+ years (myself included) for a Crossing over Kings Dyke Railway – We are still waiting for the start.
I am ‘hearing’ that the sooner we get ‘in bed’ with the ‘New’ Mayor of the Combined Authority – James Palmer – The better off we maybe –
Maybe is the question, as Mayor Palmers £Millions – seem to be a bit elasticated in the amount of schemes he is hoping to deliver.

As always if I am proven wrong – I’ll be very HAPPY again.
I also note there is NOT a lot of noise being made from our present councillors about several issues that should be address….

Finally, maybe someone at Cambs Highways can find a few £££Quids… to put some ‘Paint’ on our Zebbra Crossings which are ‘almost becoming invisible…
