Endon Well Dressing recognises eight of its longest-serving volunteers

ENDON Well Dressing has recognised the tireless commitment of some of its longest-serving volunteers.

Alan Williamson, Ken Marshall, Warwick Thomas, John Bagguley, Alick Brown and John Pickford were honoured during the traditional church service at this year’s annual May Bank Holiday festival.

Tributes were also paid to two other long-serving members, the late Fred Williamson and Geoff Perkin, who died in 2014 and January this year respectively.

The eight villagers have together given more than 400 years service to the popular village festival, which celebrated its 173rd anniversary this year.
