Dickie Bird backs tea campaign in Hatfield

COMMUNI-TEA week starts Monday.

The annual Bupa Care Homes campaign gives us all a chance to not only enjoy tea but to share it with the rest of the community, especially the elderly.

And to mark the week St Cristopher’s Nursing Home, in Hatfield, is holding a quiz buffet and tombola, with entertainment from a choir, on Wednesday, April 21.

The Drakes Way event starts at 2pm.

Dickie Bird, who signalled for tea in hundreds of matches in more than 30 years of umpiring cricket, is backing the national campaign and has designed his own mug.

He said: “You can’t beat a good cuppa – I always looked forward to having a chat during the tea interval!

“Creating a design for the Communi-tea Mug is a great way of getting involved with this campaign and Communi-tea Week really shows there are people out there who care.”
