A date for your diary – Dersingham Open Gardens

logo of open gardensDon’t forget to put the weekend of the 4th – 5th September in your diary or in your online calendar, as that is the weekend of Dersingham Open Gardens. The participating gardens will be open on both days from 11.00am until 5.00pm.

We have many “old-favourites” open and some new gardens to explore. Some of the gardens belong to local artists, who will have their studios open. Tickets will be on sale at £4 in advance at Dersingham Post Office, or £5 on the day at the Village Centre. From the Centre you will also be able to pick up your programme and list of the gardens. There will be refreshments on sale at the Centre from 10.30 on both days. All proceeds from the event will be divided between St Nicholas Church and the Village Centre.

Last year’s event was highly successful despite moving from spring to late summer and the gardeners look forward to welcoming even more visitors this year!

Fundraising Lottery Draw – July 2021

The fixed costs of the Centre are quite considerable, so your contributions are especially welcome, but we do need more players. If you know anyone who would like to join the lottery then you’ll be giving us a big helping hand. It costs just £5 per month and the more players the bigger the prize fund. Anyone can join the lottery draw online by visiting our Village Centre Fundraising page Thank you for your support!

This month’s draw was made on Monday 19th July 2021. The results are: First prize, number 24 winning £22.50. Second prize number 35 winning £15.00 and third prize number 34 winning £7.50.
