Prince a 'charming chap' says Dickie

Former cricket umpire Dickie Bird says he is looking forward to meeting up with Prince Charles in Barnsley later this month.

Dickie describes the Prince of Wales as a ‘charming chap’.

The royal makes his first visit to the town on Tuesday, January 24 – and he will meet Dickie at the umpire’s statue next to St Mary’s Church.

Said Dickie: “I’ve met the Prince before, when I received an invite to Buckingham Palace.

“It was a reception for sports personalities and I found him to be a very charming chap, very nice and easy to talk to.”

The Prince will also visit the University Campus Barnsley, where he will talk to students, before taking a tour of Wentworth Castle house and gardens.
