Fundraising Fashion

poster for fashion eveningIt’s a few weeks away yet, but we are having another Fashion Show fundraising event. The last one was very successful and this one promises to be even better! See the poster for details, but the date is Wednesday 14th March, from 6.30pm in St Cecilia’s Church Hall, Mountbatten Rd, Dersingham. It sounds fun so pop in in your diary!

Village Cinema helps our fundraising

Any profits from the Dersingham Village Cinema go towards our fund to help build and equip the new Village Centre. Films are shown in the Dersingham Social Club on the last Tuesday in the month.poster for village cinema film Churchill

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!

Fundraising Continues

Thanks to everyone who supported our recent Ceilidh and Barn Dance, which raised £500 for Village Centre funds. Thanks is also due to local retailer Fade to Grey, who invited the Village Centre Association to provide a pop-up tea shop at their Christmas Shopping Evening.  We added £80 to our funds through this highly successful event.

A big thank you to all of you  who so generously support our Lottery and other fundraising. Although construction work is now underway, we still need to raise money to equip the new building with all the essentials that a modern hall requires. Not just the exciting technical stuff like digital projectors but the nitty-gritty of tables and chairs!

Poster for fundraising Ceilidh danceOur next major fundraising event is a Ceilidh, to be held in West Newton Village Hall on Saturday 4th November. It will be a fun evening, so do get your tickets and take a whirl on the dance floor. See the poster for details.

Work Begins!

It may not look like much yet, but today is a big day for the new Dersingham Village Centre. T.M. Browne are on site, the fence has gone up and a (little) earth has been dug. More news and pictures soon!

Upcoming Fundraisers

We’re still raising money, so that we can equip the new Village Centre with all the goodies that a new hall needs. Just to update everyone, our lottery grant and other finances are in place, although there are a few i’s to be dotted and t’s to be crossed before we can actually start building. At the moment we hope to begin construction in October, but we’ll give a more accurate start date as soon as we can.

Meanwhile, please keep supporting our Village Centre Lottery and other fundraising events. The village cinema has moved to the Dersingham Social Club until the new hall is ready, and you can see details of the next couple of films from the posters here. A little later in the year we are holding a Ceilidh and Barn Dance on 4th November. All the profits from the cinema and the dance will go to Village Centre funds, so put the dates in your diary now. Thanks!
