"The village sign "Welcome to Upper Dicker" has been stolen over 50 times," said the local Vicar, Mike Hunt.
"I think we've had enough!" Mike told our countryside correspondent. Now by a special act of Parliament its name has been changed to Bell End. The river Bell ends there as the river branches to Cockintake and Dildo.
"My hands were a little tied as most of the villages around here have dirty sounding names, except for Bell End. The local students have helped by writing a few slogans for me to get people to support the new name, but there has been some opposition. The slogan, 'Its your Bell End keep it clean' has been voted the new village anti-litter saying."
