Village Cinema – Tuesday 29th March

The next film screening in the Village Centre will be on Tuesday 29th March. The film will be In The Heights (PG-13), the musical story of a corner in a predominantly Dominican neighbourhood of New York City, where every member of the community pursues their sueñitos (little dreams) for a better life. A joyous celebration of heritage and community, fuelled by dazzling direction and singalong songs!

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.

Quiz Success

Provisional figures indicate that around £1000 was raised for the Norfolk Hospice. Thanks from everybody to the quiz organiser Graham Eley and to all the volunteers who helped at the event. Thanks also, of course, to the quizzers!

Village Centre Lottery March Draw

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!

Village Voice Live

village centre logoDue to difficulties in obtaining suitable speakers, our Village Voice Live talks are still taking a break at the moment, so there will not be an event in the month of March.  However, we are glad to report that Village Voice Live will return, on Tuesday 12th April, when the featured speaker will be Sue Gattuso from Swaffham Museum. She will talk about Howard Carter, who famously discovered the tomb of the ancient Egyptian pharoah Tutankhamun. Carter was a resident of Swaffham before he departed for Egypt.
