BLUEBELL MEMBERSHIP: Take out a membership this year and visit the bluebell trail as often as you like. Unfortunately, there has had to be an increase in all the entrance charges this year, as they now have to pay 20 percent VAT the Bluebell Barn will now be assessed for Non-Domestic rates. The cost per adult will be £22 and for a family £48, to visit as often as you like whilst it is open, namely Saturday April 8 until Sunday May 14. There are various ways you can pay by BACS in advance or cash or credit card at the gate house on your first visit and your membership card will be ready for you when you next visit. Go to for more information. The Dicker village hall committee will be hoping for your support on April 8 and 9.
