Our Opening Week Events!

Village Centre LogoYes, we’re opening the new Dersingham Village Centre soon and there will be a celebratory week long series of events. Kicking it all off will be Open House on Saturday 20th October, 11.00am – 4.00pm. Borough Mayor Cllr Nick Daubney will be in attendance, and there will be an Activities Market Place where you can find out all about the various courses and activities that will be taking place in the new Centre and how you can join them! Refreshments will be available throughout the day, so pop it in your diary – Saturday 20th October.

During the week following the opening there will be a rolling programme of events and you’ll be able to drop into the new Centre, have a look round and maybe a cuppa at the pop-up cafe. More details soon.

Annual General Meeting

The 2018 Annual General Meeting of the Dersingham Village Centre Association will be held at Dersingham Social Club, Lynn Rd,  at 6.00pm on Tuesday 29th May.

Anyone interested in the new Village Centre is welcome to attend, you can join the DVCA on the spot. Membership is free and available to all Dersingham residents over the age of 18. This is an opportunity to hear progress reports on the Centre and to raise any points that concern you.

The film screening¬† will take place after the AGM at the usual time of 7.30pm. The film this month is Breathe, the story of a young man’s fight against polio.

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!
