2018 Recipient of the Alf Hicks Biscuit Barrel Award
by Wickhambrook Parish Clerk
The recipient of the Biscuit Barrel in 2018 for services to Wickhambrook is Mr Roger Medley.
The Parish Council voted overwhelmingly for Roger to receive the award. Having been Parish Clerk for ten years, only retiring in January 2016, when he went over and above the remit of Clerk, Roger has continued to give freely of his time now volunteering as Footpaths Officer and reporting to the Estates Committee of the Parish Council every two months and physically clearing the rights of way that so many residents enjoy using on a regular basis.
The photograph shows the Chairman of Wickhambrook Parish Council, Mr Paul Couzens, presenting the cut-glass biscuit barrel (originally donated for this purpose by Alf Hicks or ‘Mr Wickhambrook’ as he was known), at the Annual Parish Meeting on 11 May.
The Biscuit Barrel award is held for one year with Roger Medley’s name now added to the long list of worthy previous holders.
