DICKER DAY: This is a special day which offers fun for the village and friends. The date has now been confirmed for this year’s event as Saturday June 23. The focus of Dicker Day this year will be village games, races and food provided. Confirmation of other attractions will follow in the coming months. However, this type of event needs more people to help think up, make and run games and other stalls. Please give as much or as little help as you feel able so this year’s Dicker Day is a really fun event with lots of crazy things to do. Meetings are held once a month at 8pm in The Plough, the next one is Friday March 23. Look forward to seeing you there or just contact Sue Simpson Email:
