Update at 1pm Sunday 20th February
Following emergency repairs to the tiles on the Centre roof we are pleased to say that we have now reopened the Centre for business as usual. Our thanks to James from AC Norfolk Ltd who carried out the repairs so speedily!
The weather still looks very unsettled with more high winds forecast for the coming few days, so we we just hope that there are no further problems. Thanks to everyone for their support.
Update at 2pm Friday 18th February
Unfortunately the gales that are currently battering the local area have done some damage to the roof tiles at the Village Centre. This means that the Centre will have to close with immediate effect until repairs can be carried out. We will keep you updated but we expect the Centre to remain closed for at least today and tomorrow. Sorry everybody, blame it on Eunice!
The next film screening in the Village Centre will be on Tuesday 22nd February The film will be Dreamhorse (PG), the entertaining tale of a girl in a small Welsh village who is determined to breed a racehorse, even when she lacks the necessary experience or money. She persuades the people of her community to chip in a small amount each week to raise the foal.
The film will commence at 7.30pm and tickets are available on the door, priced at £6 with under 16s £3. Entry includes a cup of tea, coffee or squash. A licensed bar is available.
Every month there’s a chance to win a Village Centre Lottery prize. The fixed costs of the Centre are quite considerable, particularly given that energy costs are sky-rocketing, so your contributions are especially welcome. Of course, we would love to have more players so that the Centre gets even more help.
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 Thursday 11th February 2022. The results are: First prize, number 2 winning £24.75. Second prize number 42 winning £16.50 and third prize number 21 winning £8.25.
As we enter the month of February, we would usually by now be looking forward to the next in our series of talks on an interesting and entertaining subject, in other words Village Voice Live! However, despite the best efforts of Tony Bubb, who books the various speakers who come to talk to us, nobody has been secured for the February slot so the event will be taking a break. Hopefully, it will return in March but that speaker has yet to be confirmed. We will update you as soon as we can.
