Festive Food & Bingo

We are planning to have a Bingo evening between Christmas and New

There is always a bit of, what shall we do after Christmas, and what shall we do with all the food we have left over from Christmas. Here is your answer, bring a plate of food, pay £1 per person and come and have fun at bingo. We will make up a buffet with the food goodies you bring along.
