Happy New Year!
Our Christmas Bingo Evening on 7th December was very well attended and great fun was had by all. There were loads of prizes to be won and the raffle table was heaving with goodies. Many thanks to Carol and her hardworking team for arranging the evening which also raised a very good sum for the Victoria Rooms.
Don’t forget our AGM which will be held on 14th January 2020 in the Reading Room, starting at 7pm. Members of the public are invited to attend. As previously mentioned, we do have a couple of vacancies on the committee and if anyone would like to become a Trustee and help with the day to day running of our village hall, please give Philip a call on 400609.
Somerset Opera will once again be performing at the Victoria Rooms. This time, they will be performing Iolanthe on Saturday 28th March 2020. Doors open at 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start. There will be a bar. Somerset Opera are always very popular when they visit Milverton, so don’t miss out.

So far, we have received over £560.00 from this source so many thanks to everyone who has supported the Lottery and nominated the Victoria Rooms as their chosen charity.

Don’t forget to visit the market in the Victoria Rooms on the first Saturday of every month. There are stalls selling a wide range of items, many of them homemade or home grown locally. You can also sit and relax in the Reading Room while enjoying a cup of coffee and slice of cake – what better way to spend a Saturday morning! There may be vacancies for stalls over the coming months and, if you are interested in booking, please ring Sally on 400320 to check availability.
