Have a cup of coffee with us!

Just a reminder about this Saturday’s fundraising coffee morning. The main purpose is to raise money for cups, saucers, plates etc, so that the new Village Centre has a fully equipped kitchen able to cater for all needs. We will have some sample crockery on display so that you can have a look. To raise some money we will be selling (surprise, surprise) coffee, tea and cake, but there will be some stalls with plants, greetings cards and more.

All the money raised will be going into the ‘crockery kitty’ so please come along and support us. One or two people have offered donations of crockery and we are currently deciding whether we can mix and match those with the new. But a big thank you to all those who are supporting the new hall in whatever way!

1st prize number 70 winning £36.00
2nd prize number 13 winning £24.00
3rd prize number 22 winning £12.00

A fundraising update – we have had several successful grant applications, including a recent grant from the village Co-op of £465. However, the lottery is still a very important part of our fundraising efforts. More money will still be needed to complete the fitting out of the new hall, so do please keep helping us!

Fundraising Fun

We’ve got a couple of great fundraising events coming up soon and we really need your support. There is still a way to go to raise all the money we need in order to fully equip the new Centre, so please help by supporting these events.

First up is the Dersingham Community Fun Day on Sunday 10th June, from 12noon. A Fun Dog Show (at 1pm), games, music, bouncy castles, stalls, BBQ and refreshments are all on offer, plus the DVCA’s own stall. Here you will find prize winning games and a raffle, with all the proceeds going to the new Village Centre. Play “Hunt the Wine” and win a bottle of something nice to have with dinner tonight!

Later in June the DVCA will be hosting a special coffee morning when we’re hoping that not only will you enjoy a cup of coffee, but you’ll buy one or more cups, saucers, plates etc. We need at least one hundred sets of, well everything really, so that the new hall can cater for functions large and small. The coffee morning will be in St Nicholas Church on Saturday 23rd June 10.00am – 12.00noon.

There’s more information on the posters you can see here, so thank you in advance for all your support!

We need a minimum of fifteen people at the meeting, and it should only take a few minutes to explain the amendment and to take a vote. Please come along and support the Committee who are working so hard behind the scenes.
