Just a reminder about the Extraordinary General Meeting tomorrow – 8.15pm Tuesday 20th March at the Dersingham Social Club, Lynn Road.
The purpose of the meeting is to approve a small but essential amendment to the DVCA Constitution, which is required in order to satisfy the Charity Commissioners who are processing our application for charitable status.
We need a minimum of fifteen people at the meeting, and it should only take a few minutes to explain the amendment and to take a vote. Please come along and support the Committee who are working so hard behind the scenes.
Once again, the time is 815pm and the date Tuesday 20th March. Venue is Dersingham Social Club, Lynn Road. Thanks!

The next draw will be held in early April and to be included in it your subscription must be current on the 25th March. You can join or renew your lottery subscription by downloading a form from the Fundraising page on the website, and you can pay there by using PayPal or by most debit or credit cards.
It’s a few weeks away yet, but we are having another Fashion Show fundraising event. The last one was very successful and this one promises to be even better! See the poster for details, but the date is Wednesday 14th March, from 6.30pm in St Cecilia’s Church Hall, Mountbatten Rd, Dersingham. It sounds fun so pop in in your diary!
Any profits from the Dersingham Village Cinema go towards our fund to help build and equip the new Village Centre. Films are shown in the Dersingham Social Club on the last Tuesday in the month.
Our next presentation is one of two films about the great Winston Churchill that are doing the rounds at the moment. Churchill stars Brian Cox as the great man, ably assisted by Miranda Richardson as his wife. Once again the focus is on the dark days of World War II and upon Churchill’s weighty words that galvanise the nation into action.
The Social Club is in Lynn Road almost opposite the Coop supermarket. Doors open at 6.45 and screenings begin at 7.30. The £5 admission includes free tea or coffee and there is also a licensed bar. The date is Tuesday 30th January – don’t miss a good film and the chance to support our fundraising!

A big thank you to all of you who so generously support our Lottery and other fundraising. Although construction work is now underway, we still need to raise money to equip the new building with all the essentials that a modern hall requires. Not just the exciting technical stuff like digital projectors but the nitty-gritty of tables and chairs!
Our next major fundraising event is a Ceilidh, to be held in West Newton Village Hall on Saturday 4th November. It will be a fun evening, so do get your tickets and take a whirl on the dance floor. See the poster for details.
