The Whittlesey Festival left the town’s mayor bamboozled and brought smiles to the many families who enjoyed the sun and various attractions last Sunday. Councillor Alex Miscandlon clearly delighted in the card skills of magician Ricky Lock, buthealsohadplentyofpraise for the Second World War flypast by a Spitfire and Lancaster bomber which capped off a memorable day.
He said: “The whole day was absolutely fantastic. The weatherwasgreatandthepeople were great and the flypast wasmagnificent. I’m a petrolheadandenjoyedthecarsand motorcycles spread down the high street.”
As well as a display of vintage vehicles, there was music, song and dance finishing with the Romford Drum and Trumpet Corp and Peterborough Highland Band. The day began at 9.55am with a large parade from the Whittlesey Christian Church in Broad Street.
