In our last post we mentioned that the Village Centre Lottery is now up and running and welcoming your contributions to our fundraising efforts. It’s not a one way street either, there are cash prizes to be won!
If you would like to play the Lottery then you can download an information sheet, which includes an application form, from this link.
Thanks, and good luck!
A very Happy New Year to all Dersingham residents, and may 2016 bring you good health, peace and prosperity.
Here at the Village Centre working group we are hoping for good news in 2016 as we await the result of our bid for funding from The Big Lottery. We had hoped that our stage 2 bid would have been approved by now, but it seems that, like so many things in life, the Lottery are running late! So it may be February before we have a result.
Meanwhile, we are fundraising around the village, as we will need to add substantially to any monies received from the Big Lottery. We have our own lottery up and running now – the Dersingham Centre Lottery, where members each pay a £5 monthly subscription to purchase a number. All numbers are entered into a monthly prize draw, with 30% of the sales being distributed as prizes. The remaining 70% of subscriptions will go to the new Village Centre fund. If you would like to subscribe, preferably annually or in quarterly instalments, please contact the Parish council office, or complete the form in the December issue of Village Voice magazine.
The village cinema continues to be popular, and as well as providing a service to the community it is also a source of revenue which will go towards the development of the new Dersingham Village Centre and Village Hall.
The next film to be shown is definitely one with a Christmas theme – the Dickens tale of Scrooge. A golden oldie starring some great names from the past, Sir Michael Hordern, George Cole and Alistair Sim.
The projector will roll at 7.30pm on Friday December 2015 and as usual the cinema will be in St Nicholas church hall. Do try and support these events, because each one brings the finishing line for our fundraising a little closer.
Following hard on Scrooge’s heels is not only the ghost of Marley but no less than Cinderella! On Saturday 12th December at 3pm the village cinema will feature this classic tale in a film starring Kate Blanchett as the eponymous heroine.
A film for all the family, so don’t miss this afternoon treat.
The village cinema is proving to be very popular, and as well as providing a service to the community it is also a source of revenue which will go towards the development of the new Dersingham Village Centre and Village Hall.
