Vivien Fire Engine Trust
"Vivien" is a Leyland fire engine, which was proudly serving Wisbech from 1932 until 1963. Named after the Mayoress at the time, Vivien was regarded as one of the most up-to-date fire engines in the district. It featured the distinctive "Borough of Wisbech Fire Brigade" lettering and the Borough of Wisbech armorial bearings on the side.
The Vivien Fire Engine Trust consists of a group of historical fire-fighting enthusiasts, who collaborated to restore and preserve "Vivien". George Dunlop, with help from his family and friends, was able to bring Vivien back to Wisbech from Yorkshire after a spell from being "away from home". With help from the Trust and local businesses, Vivien was restored to its former glory. Vivien and the Trust feature in many local events and exhibitions, ranging from historical galleries, parades, festive occasions, and even for private events such as weddings

This traditional Victorian park has been welcoming visitors for more than 138 years and is home to several nationally important heritage landmarks, including the impressive Young Memorial Column (Grade II listed, 1872) and the traditional bandstand (Grade II listed, 1908). Wisbech Park stretches out over 11 acres within the Bowthorpe Conservation Area and provides a combination of large open grass fields with wooded areas. The Friends of Wisbech Park community group contributes to many projects in the park. There are band concerts held in the summer with a Christmas carol concert in December. The park offers an excellent variety of recreational and educational facilities that includes a play area for children, tennis courts, tree sculptures and a wild flora area. The seasonal floral displays provide year round colour in the park and have been highly praised by the Anglia in Bloom judges.
