Casino Night – Fun and Fundraising!

As part of our ongoing fundraising for the Village Centre, there will be a Supper and Casino Night in the Main Hall of the Centre, at 7.00pm on Saturday 16th March. This will be a joint fundraising event between the Dersingham Village Centre Association and the Dersingham Tennis Club.

The evening will have a fun, James Bond style theme, so if you’ve ever wanted to sit at a roulette or baccarat table and ask for “a dry martini, shaken not stirred”, this may be your chance! See the poster for details and save the date, Saturday 16th March.
