SUPPORT is needed to make a village run the best ever for its silver anniversary.

The Dedham Run, on September 23, sees serious striders take on a 10k course around the village, while fun runners can enjoy a more sedate 3k route.

Organisers are looking for raffle prizes and sponsorship by local businesses to make the run, in its 25th year, the best yet.

Companies are invited to sponsor trophies, a water station or advertise their name on the entry numbers.

They could also have a stall at the entertainment in Dedham Park or have products in the goody bags.

People interested should contact Neil Watts on 07976 308963 or at .

Anyone with raffle prizes should contact Liz Clarke on 01206 230949 or 07889 309112.
