Guy Fawkes Fireworks and BBQ - 4th November 2022

Thanks to the generosity of the Dunn family, we were able to re-instate our annual Fireworks Party.


We assembled on the far side of the cricket pitch field, Keith Dunn let us use a corner of the next field for the fireworks, and Richard supplied two enormous braziers and the wood to burn in them.   Fireworks were provided out of Village Hall funds, and we were even lucky with the weather.   There was lots of well-informed star-gazing (is it Venus, is it the International Space Station?) as we walked back to the Village Hall for a generous barbecue cooked for us by Geoff Dyke, with venison burgers provided f.o.c. by Richard Dunn and mulled wine from Claire Dunn.

H.M. The Queen's Platinum Jubilee - 3rd June 2022

In 2022 we combined the annual Village Fete with our celebration of The Queen's Platinum Jubilee, across the long bank holiday weekend of 2nd - 5th June.   This was a very inclusive celebration, so that we got to know the new faces who have moved to Dinder during the pandemic.  The main events were:

Friday First Friday Bar as usual on the evening of Friday 3rd June, opening at 7.30pm

A Village Photograph including over 80 residents.  Copies are still available from

Platinum Jubilee Lunch at the Village Hall on Saturday 4th June, coordinated by Becky Gilbert and Tanya Tyreman.   A 'bring and share' lunch, with games and activities for children and bar open for the adults.   


The Jubilee Concert on our big screen in the Hall on the Saturday evening

Celebration Events in Wells were on Sunday 4th June, so there were no plans for anything specific in Dinder.
