DICKER DAY: This year the aim was for more games and races and a more local focus for music and activities. There were plenty of children and some brave adults who joined in the races and the tug of war. The highlight was the Wheelbarrow Obstacle Challenge thanks to Paradise Park for lending the wheelbarrows. This will be back bigger and better for next year. Music was provided by the ever exuberant Harmonie Concert Band, then jazz and vocal groups from Bede’s entertained us with some great numbers and Milly Cranston rounded off the afternoon with her talented singing. There was great food and drink, time to sit and chat or try to win something on the raffle or the Barrow of Booze and all under a blue sky. A big thank you to all those who gave so much time and energy to make Dicker Day such a happy and successful event. Thanks to all those staff at Bede’s who organised the student’s participation in various events, provided equipment and cut the grass, and to the Village Hall team for providing the tea and snacks.
