1st Prize, £198 K Hatton (216)
2nd Prizes, £49.50 B Sarbutt (092) and B Sarbutt (095)
The October 2015 draw marked the close of the 6th year of the Lophams' Village Hall lottery!
During that time, over £22,000 has been distributed in prize money and over £11,000 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 22nd October 2016 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.
Recent improvements to the Village Hall include more work on the kitchen area (and there is still plenty to do there); 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 October 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. In spite of rising costs, especially electricity, it was decided at the last meeting not to increase them for a further 12 months unless conditions change dramatically.
