BINGO: Thank you to Pauline Wilson, Fiona Hosein and Kim Lee for a very enjoyable prize bingo evening last Friday. Despite having a bad throat, call Pauline did a sterling job with Fiona as her aid. The prizes were amazing and so many donated by the local businesses including The Bear, The Wheel, the Flower House, the Butchers, Sparkle Team cleaners, and others. There were hampers, wine, chocolates, hanging baskets, home made cakes and more. Kim Lee and her daughter kept us all well supplied with refreshments. It was good to see whole families playing the game together and having a lot of luck. Well done everyone.
