Over 80 people enjoyed the recent annual Draw Night Supper at East Keswick Village Hall.
Organised by Janita Dedicoat and Malcolm Brook, the evening started with a delicious supper before moving on to a fun quiz, compiled as usual by Brian Dower, followed by a lively raffle for some lovely prizes.
Then, it was down to the big business of the night – the Annual Draw.
For just £20 a year, subscribers to the Village Hall Draw have the chance of winning one of three cash prizes each month - £30, £20 and £10. Once a year, however, at the Draw Night Supper, these prizes are massively increased to £500, £250 and £150. And John Hyland, a popular village resident, scooped the £500 first prize.
Peter Guildford, Chairman of the East Keswick Village Hall Trustees, said: “The prize draw is a great way for everyone to support their village hall.
“We even have incentives in place so that existing members who introduce two new members can enjoy a year’s free subscription.
“Best of all, it’s another of those great village occasions when everyone gets together for a fun evening.”
