Our next presentation is one of two films about the great Winston Churchill that are doing the rounds at the moment. Churchill stars Brian Cox as the great man, ably assisted by Miranda Richardson as his wife. Once again the focus is on the dark days of World War II and upon Churchill’s weighty words that galvanise the nation into action.

The Social Club is in Lynn Road almost opposite the Coop supermarket. Doors open at 6.45 and screenings begin at 7.30. The £5 admission includes free tea or coffee and there is also a licensed bar. The date is Tuesday 30th January – don’t miss a good film and the chance to support our fundraising!

Into the New Year and the build continues

A rare moment of sunshine enabled me to take a few photos of the progress that’s being made on the building of our new Dersingham Village Centre. As you can see, on the 12th January the steelwork went into place, thanks to the big orange crane! You can also get an impression of the overall size of the new building from the wooden struts that show where the blocks and bricks will go.

We still need your support, so do please join our Lottery or use one of the other fundraising methods, such as buy a brick. All the details can be found on the Fundraising page of our website. Thanks!
