Lophams' Village Hall Lottery
December 2016 Winners:
1st Prize, £200 - M Lanchester (136)
2nd Prizes, £50 - B Inglis (076) and P & S Marley (176)
The October 2016 draw marked the close of the 7th year of the Lophams' Village Hall lottery!
During the last seven years, over £25,000 has been distributed in prize money and over £13,500 has been contributed to the Village Hall Development Fund. Sincere thanks from the hall management committee to all those who have participated, your support has allowed us to make important improvements to the building and its surroundings, some of which are listed below. Please remember that our principal purpose is to maintain the fabric of the hall as an attractive venue for the use and benefit of local people and that the proceeds from the Village Hall Lottery are designated entirely for this. If you're not in the lottery but would like to join, please ring 01379 687718, supply your contact details and you will be notified as soon as a vacancy arises.
Why not hire the hall for an event of your own? It's there for you to use! Contact details and hire rates are published on this site.
The Next Draw will be on SATURDAY 28TH JANUARY 2017 at the Farmers' Market.
To see a list of previous winners, click on 'Lottery News' at the top left of this page and scroll down.
Continued improvements to the Village Hall include more work on the kitchen area; new tiled walls, new electrical equipment, humidifyer, with more cupboard doors being be replaced in the coming months; the car park has been resurfaced; facilities for the less able have been relocated to improve access (thanks to Paul Sturman, builders); the main gates have been moved to encourage more use of the field when the hall is not open; and a dog bin and new litter bin have been put in place. Thank you all for your support which has allowed us to get these things done, however, there is always further work required and your on-going and greatly valued participation is still needed so, if you entered for six months, you may need to renew your entry by 14th January to stay in with a chance and to continue to help the Village Hall. Contact Tim Colyer 01379 687718; Thanks again everyone!
Hiring the Hall
To hire the hall, please telephone Mrs. J. Vere on 01379 687679. To view current hiring rates, click here. Hiring rates have been held since October 1st 2011.
