Thanks for the poem from Dave Wood, local poet- to celebrate DIG IN's tenth anniversary. Dave has been involved with DIG IN since we started, supported us at events, got his hands dirty and sung our praises when needed. Cheers Dave!

o the corn! - for dig in's tenth anniversary
ten ten and here's to the golden years 
the laughs the jokes - and o the corn!
the stories then - the chuckling of the ears
it's once upon a ten that they were born
the laughs the jokes - and o the corn!
the spuds - the greens - and (phwoar) the fruit
dig in's weathered more than many storms
and now ten years promises its hoots
the stories then - the chuckling of the ears
the poet rhymed us with his daft nibbed pen
the pumpkin had us dancing without fear
we'll keep on digging in our dance again
the stories then - the chuckling of the ears
ten ten and here's to the golden years

DAVE WOOD
