Social life revolves around the village hall at Bicker, where a number of events take place.

Sheila Wing, who is on the village hall committee, is currently promoting a Prom Fayre being held at the hall on Saturday, February 16 (9.30am to 4.30pm).

The fayre will have everything to do with proms: from tiaras, dresses, jewellery and make-up, to limos and cars, spray tans and flowers.

Sheila says the hall, originally constructed in the 1940s and re-built in the 1980s, is in good condition.

More recently, the hall has had a make-over, with new kitchen, toilets and windows, much of the money coming from grants from the wind farm at Bicker Fen.

Sheila said: “It’s well used and we have lots of things going on, such as keep fit for the over 50s on Thursday mornings, bingo every Monday evening, the WI and a gardening group meet once a month, and we have our own functions. We also have a bowls club that meets behind the village hall and I am secretary of Bicker Bowls Club.”

Other events at the hall include Bicker Railway & Model Engineering Show, on Sunday, March 17 (9.30am to 4.30pm), with several working railway layouts. Admission £2.50, £1 eight to 16, under-7s free.
