The author has had a chat with the new owner of the village pub. The owner has a strong vision of how to develop the site. She wishes to turn the building back to a village pub, and restoring the old name of the “Horse and Groom”.

Last night the village hall resounded with shouts of bingo! as usual on every other Thursday evening. However, last night was a bit special. Read on.
One game of bingo! which is played half-way through the evening is the Snowball. This is an accumulator game. Prize money from one snowball game going on to the following fortnight’s game if it is not won. To win the Snowball you have to have a “full house”; all numbers on a card being called out, but within the first set of numbers called. So if it takes more numbers to be called out before someone marks off all the numbers on their card, a portion of the prize money goes onto the Snowball game in a fortnight’s time.
Well last night, after several weeks of “house” not being successfully called before the limit, the Snowball accumulator was won! The happy winner is pictured below.
Have you thought about joining in. Its not all about winning, but a get-together, with time for a chat during the coffee break, as well as before and after the game. There is also a raffle.
Thanks go to Wendy for organising the games, Alan for calling, and Jane for making the teas and coffees.
The next bingo! night is Thursday 16th March 2017. If you would like to play bingo! with us, and catch up with friends, just pop along at 7:30pm.
There will be Bingo! in the Tunstead Village Hall, tonight; Thursday 16th February 2017.
The portacabin will be resounding with the shouts of House! this Thursday at 7:30. The fortnightly bingo session will be held to raise funds for the Village Hall and Recreation Ground.
Do come along. It would be great to see you there. I have bought a Bingo Dabber, so I am well prepared.
As I write this it is trying to snow, so the approach of spring is an appealing thought. Snowdrops are a symbol of that thought. The sight of snowdrops brings a smile to the face when thinking of the approach of spring.
With that thought in mind, how about a walk in Snowdrop World. Mr and Mrs Blofeld are opening their garden for just that purpose.
