Sidford Playgroup plans bingo night to raise funds to buy new play equipment

IT will be ‘eyes down’ for a Bingo evening next month to help Sidford Playgroup raise funds for new equipment.

The event, to be held at Sidford Social Hall on Friday, March 2 from 7pm, with an 8pm start for Bingo, has been organised by pre-school committee members.

There will be cash prizes on offer along with tea, coffee, soft drinks, homemade cakes and snacks on sale.

Committee member, Vicky Eul-Barker, said: “The evening is open to all ages so if you’re a pro or a novice it will be a good night out.

“Contestants can grab a bite and a cuppa while trying their luck in this popular game.”

She said since her daughter, Harriet, three, began attending the pre-school each morning she had blossomed, made friends, was learning through play and growing more independent.

She added: “Sidford Playgroup is such a warm and welcoming environment. It’s a brilliant stepping stone between home and school.”

She said fund raising events ensured the pre-school equipment was kept up-to-date and interesting for children.

Both children and parents/carers can continue to benefit from the knowledge and caring support the dedicated staff can offer within this pre-school setting.”

Playgroup sessions are from 9.30am to 12.20pm on weekday mornings during term time. For more details about it or the Bingo evening call Caroline Vansittart: 07966 953096.
