Bicker Buds is celebrating after being able to buy a new ride-on mower.

Earlier this month members received a certificate from Coun Mike Brookes to recognise the award of £500 from the Big Society Fund, which helped meet the cost.

The funding for the mower was achieved through Coun Brookes’ generous allocation, with a further £500 from JDM Foodgroup of Bicker, and the balance raised through a coffee morning held at Bicker Methodist Chapel.

Bicker Buds is a group that undertakes voluntary work in the parish of Bicker, in co-operation with the parish council, with the aim of improving and maintaining its public spaces. The mower will enable additional grass cutting to complement the work already carried out.
