2017 Recipient of the Alf Hicks Biscuit Barrel Award
by Wickhambrook Parish Clerk
Maggie Elers, the recipient of the Alf Hicks Biscuit Barrel award 2017.
Maggie has given many years of time and effort to worthwhile causes and events in the village. To name but a few she has helped run a playgroup, was a member of the Community Association helping to run village events such as the firework display and helped organise dances raising money for the village hall. Maggie has made costumes for the Wickhambrook Players pantomime and carol concerts and most recently is a stalwart member of the Carnival Committee, reviving this annual event which has proved to be an ongoing success every summer.
Maggie was the unanimous choice by the Parish Council for the award this year and the photograph shows Chairman Paul Couzens with Maggie who will hold the Biscuit Barrel for twelve months and have her name added to the list of previous worthy holders of the award.
The presentation was made at the Annual Parish Meeting on 18 May 2017.
