Help the Village Centre – be a volunteer

header image

Dersingham Village Centre needs YOU! At the moment we have a number of volunteers and we are enormously grateful to them for all the effort they put in. But we would love to get more people involved and spread the load. You can become involved in helping to run the Village centre in two ways; either as a Volunteer or as a Trustee. Read on to see what’s involved in each role. Either as a Volunteer or as a Trustee you will be very welcome!

Contact us by emailing: or telephone 01485 543195 (If necessary leave a message and we will call you back).


Naturally, any event that takes place in the Centre usually requires helpers of some sort. This particularly applies to things such as our regular friendship lunches and pop-up coffee shop, plus tea dances, film screenings and talks. One off fundraising events such as our ceilidh, quizzes and Christmas fair need helpers too. There are plenty of other opportunities, such as our gardeners who look after the flower beds that fringe the car park. If you would like to get involved and be part of the team, please get in touch.


The Village Centre is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, run by a committee of Trustees who meet around two to three times a month.  At our meetings we discuss the management of the Centre’s finances, any issues to do with the day-to-day running of the building and make plans for future fund raising events. Plus, of course, we discuss any other issues that have come up since our last meeting.

Being a Trustee is a responsible position, but under the rules of the Charity Commissioners no Trustee can be held personally liable for any issues concerning the Centre, so if we make a loss you won’t have to make up any shortfall! As a Trustee you should live locally and be prepared to attend meetings and take part in the running of the Centre. You will be able to make your views known and be part of the decision making team. We welcome new Trustees, so if you would like to become involved please get in touch.

Village Voice Live – Tuesday 11th January

Happy New Year to everybody! Just a reminder that our first Village Voice Live talk of the New Year will be on Tuesday 11th January at 7.30pm in the main hall of the Centre.

The illustrated talk will be given by Jenny Hobson from the Friends of Horsey Seals and she will tell you all about these popular marine creatures. Admission costs £6 and we apologise that we have had to increase the price by £1 this year, due to rising costs, particularly energy. However, your ticket does get you a cup of tea, coffee or squash, a piece of cake and a raffle ticket with some excellent prizes to be won. Plus a fascinating talk, of course!
