AN England rugby star will be opening a traditional village day in Codicote tomorrow (Saturday).

Saracens player Charlie Hodgson will be the VIP guest at Codicote Village Day, which will take place on Saturday, starting with a parade along the High Street.

Kicking off at 1pm, the procession will end at Codicote Sports and Social Club in Bury Lane.

There will also be more than 100 stalls selling cakes, sweets, plants, jewellery and face painting.

There will also be a float contest, baby competition, dog show and country dancing.

Debi Gillard, village day committee member, encouraged everyone to come along.

She said: “It is a great day out. It is free and there is lots going on for all ages. It is just a good community event.”
