Lottery Supports Fun for Village Children

A very happy lady who wishes to remain anonymous won the first prize of £112 in the Littlehempston Lottery drawn at the end of September, with James Dunn as the lucky winner of the second prize of £28.  A most welcome cheque for £140 was donated to the Community Space. Well done to the lucky winners and a big thank you to organiser, Ken Wood, pictured here with Ellie Wilkins from the Pig & Whistle, who drew the winning numbers. And if you’d like to have a flutter and support village causes, give Ken a ring on 01803 865541. There is just one draw left this year – at Villagers Night – so there’s still time to be a winner….

The recent lottery donations have been used to set up regular activities for our local children every fortnight on a Friday night in the Space. Around 14 youngsters mostly of primary school age come along to enjoy a mix of games, table tennis, bingo and activities like pumpkin lantern making and craft. It’s great to see them all getting to know each other, especially as they often go to different schools. The parents also enjoy the get together in the Tally, while they wait!

This is a pilot study that will run till Christmas and then in the New Year, if successful, Jason will organise a full programme for 2018, including outdoor activities and outings in the Spring and Summer. If you’d like to know more, get in touch with Jason or come along on a Friday – check our Events page for the next session.
