QUIZ

The recent quiz at Dicker Village Hall was attended by well over 50 people and raised much needed funds of £461.26 for the Village Hall. Thanks go to Quiz Master Stuart Higgins and Glynis Brook and her team for their hard work.

DOG SHOW

This was at the beginning of May at Dicker Village Hall. The Food Stall was run by Glynis Brook and her team raising £410 for the Village Hall Funds. The Hall installed a new kitchen in October last year and needs to build up its maintenance funds again as the cost, as always, has to come from hiring fees and fundraising events such as the two above. It is a stand-alone Charity Trust and has to raise its own funds. There is a Hall Trust Management Committee which meets four times a year. If you think you can contribute to the work that goes on behind the scenes please get in touch on 844687, 847692 or 848300.
