April Lottery Winning Numbers

image of lottery drawThere are three prize winners each month in our Village Centre fundraising lottery and you might be one of them! But you have to be in it to win it, so if you’re not already subscribing to our fundraising Lottery, please go to the fundraising page on our website and sign up. It’s really important to keep the money rolling in, because the Centre costs a substantial amount to run and there are still many additions and improvements that we want to make, for the benefit of all users.

The April draw took place in the Dersingham Village Centre on Tuesday 9th April 2019, during the interval at the monthly Village Voice Live talk. The winning numbers were:

1st prize, number 42 winning £30.75
2nd prize, number 9 winning £20.50
3rd prize, number 19 winning £10.25

Easter Indoor Picnic

Easter will soon be here and everyone is hoping for warm sunshine! But supposing it isn’t warm and sunny, or you just feel like spending a couple of hours at a fun event. Well, come along to the Village Centre on the afternoon of Easter Monday 22nd April for an Indoor Picnic/Afternoon Tea. It costs just £2 per person, payable on the door, and there will be plenty of tea, cake, sandwiches etc to enjoy. Wear a crazy hat, as we’re featuring an Easter Hat Parade as part of the afternoon.

2.30 – 4.30pm Monday 22nd April.  All ages welcome, but children must be accompanied by an adult.
