2016 Recipient of the Alf Hicks Biscuit Barrel Award
by Wickhambrook Parish Clerk
This year the award went to Mrs Valerie Orange who is awarded the crystal biscuit barrel to keep for one year together with a certificate as a lasting record.
Valerie has been President of the WI and was a committee member for many years, she now handles WI press and publicity. She is caretaker at the URC and is also the village correspondent which means that anything in the newspapers is down to her. Valerie recently retired from being a Higher Learning Teaching Assistant at Wickhambrook Primary School but is still very involved in village life.
The Councillors were very pleased to unanimously endorse the nomination and the presentation was made at the Annual Parish Meeting on 12 May 2016.
