First of all, a big thank you to all who helped at or supported our coffee morning on 13th July. It was very well attended and raised a good sum towards our funds. Coffee mornings are always popular and a great way of raising money, while relaxing and enjoying a slice of delicious cake!
We now have a fundraising co-ordinator and our fundraising committee have a number of events in the pipeline (see below for details). However, if anyone has a great idea for a fundraiser, please give Sue a ring on 400609.
Milverton Music Club are kindly arranging a fundraiser for the Victoria Rooms on Saturday 21st September with the ever-popular and brilliant Silver Street Band headlining. They will be ably supported by the Blackdown Hillbillies. Doors open at 7.30pm for an 8pm start. There will also be a bar. This promises to be a great evening and tickets, priced at £10.00, are selling fast, so make sure you purchase yours by telephoning either Trish on 400416 or Sue on 400609.
This year our Quiz Night will be on Friday 15th November. More details to follow in the October magazine.
Looking further ahead, we are planning a Christmas Bingo Evening on Saturday, 7th December and, again, more details will follow next month.
We are very pleased to welcome back Milverton Red Dragon Karate who are to commence weekly Tuesday evening sessions in September. We are also pleased that the Bridge Club is able to continue meeting in the Reading Room on Wednesday afternoons.
Don’t forget that you can support our village hall by purchasing a ticket for the Somerset West Lottery and selecting the Victoria Rooms as your chosen charity. For each ticket purchased, the Victoria Rooms receives 50p. We receive a regular monthly payment from the Somerset West Lottery, dependent upon the number of tickets sold so, the more tickets sold, the better the chance for the ticketholder to win a prize and the more funds raised for the Victoria Rooms. To purchase your tickets, go to the website www.somersetwestlottery.co.uk and search for Milverton Victoria Rooms. Good luck!
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 are a few vacancies for stalls over the next few months and, if you are interested in booking, please ring Sally on 400320 to check availability.
If you would like to book the Victoria Rooms, please contact Geoff on 401365 (or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details, or visit the village website www.milverton-somerset.uk/milverton.village.hall.
