The latest draw for the Village Centre Lottery took place just before the Parish Council meeting on the evening of Monday 31st July. You’ll find the winning numbers below, for this, the August draw (yes, it is a day early!) and other draws over the past few months. If you’ve won a prize it will be sent to you automatically, but it’s nice to know! Please keep supporting the Village Centre Lottery as it’s one of our main streams of fundraising income. All the more important now that we are nearing the start of the build of the new hall.
August winning numbers – 50, 66,34. The first prize this month was £39.75, the second £26.50 and the third £13.25.
A marvellous aerial photograph of Dersingham has recently been taken by The Skyz The Limit, who apparently used a drone to get this amazing shot. As part of our fundraising efforts we are offering high quality prints of this view, complete in a frame at a variety of sizes. If you would like one, just contact the Parish Council office. It will look great on your wall and you’ll be helping our fundraising!
The prices are as follows:
Open edition framed prints
A4 – £15
A3 – £20
A2 – £27.50
Limited edition (100) print on canvas, box framed – £35
Our next fundraising event is one of our ever popular tea dances. Friday 21st July 2.00pm – 4.00pm in St Nicholas Church Hall, Dersingham. tickets £4 on the door. All dancers welcome, including beginners.
As the final few events in the old St Nicholas Church Hall take place, it’s time for an update on the progress of our project. There’s good news – most of the funding that we need is now in place. The Big Lottery have approved our application and granted us £550,000. We have been successful with several other grant applications and we are able to borrow some of the funds that we need on favourable terms.
But, we can’t be complacent. There’s still more work to do before we can start building, although we are very hopeful that we can start by the end of the summer. We are still pursuing more avenues of fund-raising and that’s where you can help. Please read on . . .
So that the project can advance as quickly as possible we need to keep fundraising, so that we have money in hand for such essential items as kitchen equipment, seating, stage lighting and so on. Once the build is complete we want to open the Centre as soon as possible, to maximise the benefits to the community.
