Co-op Causes

Postbridge Village Hall have been successful in their application to be selected as one of the Co-op Causes this year coming to receive funding. I will explain how WE as a village/individual can help this funding along.

If you have a Co-op Card (blue in colour) and it is NOT REGISTERED, please go onto the
Co-op website

By backing us, any money you spend on Co-op own brand goods, will generate 1% to go into the Village Hall ‘pot’. If your card isn’t registered, then that 1% will only go into the large pot for all three charities to be divided up in October 2018. If however, you don’t have a card at all or do not register it, then any money you spend on own brand goods will be lost. So it really does make sense to get a card and ensure it is registered.

You can use your card, providing it is registered at any Co-op you choose but if you haven’t backed us, then it will only go into the fund of the area you shop in, but registered, it means we will receive the money into our pot.

If you are not aware of what we are trying to raise funds for, it is to re-build the small shed at the side of the hall to provide extra space for the tables/chairs and of course ensure that the electricity power box is kept dry and damp free during the bad weather.

For further details please contact Sue Hammett.

The Postbridge Draw

The Postbridge Draw is run in aid of the Village Hall and it is drawn on the second Sunday of every month.  First prize is £10, second prize is £5 and third prize is £2.  The draw venue alternates between the East Dart Hotel and the Warren House Inn.  Entry to the draw is essentially by 'Annual Subscription' but additional balls may be purchased at the event.  Conditions in Postbridge are so attractive that no-one to date has retired on their winnings - all have continued with their daily work
