We have had a number of hirings for our gazebos during the recent spell of good weather and with summer, hopefully, due to return very soon, these will come in useful and provide shelter from the hot sun. If you are planning a BBQ or family get-together and would like to hire one of the gazebos, please give Philip a ring on 400609. The hire charges are very reasonable, with every penny going towards the upkeep of our village hall.
Talking of fundraising, we are holding one of our ever-popular coffee mornings on Saturday 13th July from 10am to noon. Come along and enjoy a cup of coffee and a slice of delicious homemade cake while chatting with your friends or reading the daily newspapers. There will also be a book stall, a raffle and a bring & buy stall. If you have a contribution for any of the stalls, please contact Maggie on 400142, she would love to hear from you.
While we are still looking for a fundraising co-ordinator to plan our future events, we are also open to suggestions for ways to make money for the Victoria Rooms. If you have a great idea for a fundraiser please give Sue a ring on 400609 and, between us, we can make it happen.
Another way of supporting our village hall and helping to raise funds is to purchase a ticket for the Somerset West Lottery. 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!
Our popular monthly Saturday Community market is continuing to thrive with colourful stalls selling a variety of products, together with the café in the Reading Room where you can enjoy coffee and cake while contemplating your purchases. 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.
The 100 Club is now full and will run until June 2020. Come to see the draw at the market on the first Saturday of each month and see if you have won! If you aren’t in it, you won’t win it (£50), so give Chris a ring if you want to put your name down for next year. 400 872.
Over the last few months we have been accumulating an assortment of umbrellas, left at the Rooms after events. If you have mislaid your umbrella, please give Chris a ring on 400872 to see if one of them is yours.
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.
