Bingo Club Getting Ready To Celebrate
50 years is always a milestone worth celebrating, regardless of what walk of life you are in. This can be said for people as much as it is for businesses which is why when a venue or company reaches the half century, there is a reason to celebrate and have a party.
The Warners End Community Centre will be celebrating its 50th anniversary on September the 8th when there will be a full day of activities planned. The fun will begin at2pm and there will be stalls to enjoy from this time. There will be a number of arts and crafts stalls and activities for people to get involved with and there will be singing and dancing lined up to enjoy as well. There will also be events for youngsters to enjoy throughout the day so it promises to be a family affair. As the day rolls into the night, there will be a disco bringing the evening to a close.
Bingo brings people together
Hilary Moorton, the assistant manager of the club said; “We’re going to have to issue tickets – staff past and present, the management committee and people who have used the centre. It’s another way of getting people to know what we do. I went to the pre-school here, had my work experience here. People have had their weddings here – long may it continue.”
The history of the club dates back to 1962 where the founders were led by Joyce and John Framp. The family connection is carried through to this day and age as Hilary is the daughter of John Framp. John remains the honorary president of the club and will hopefully be involved with the celebrations as well.
One of the most consistent clubs to have graced this venue is the bingo club, which is also closing in on 50 years. There is not quite the same level of consistency in owners and players in the bingo but with the game being central to the popularity of the club; it has obviously been an integral part of the long-running success of the club.
Bingo has been at the heart of British life for much of the past century and it is easy to see why it remains so popular. Even though online bingo games are taking over from traditional bingo halls and fun, there will still be a need for bingo games for people of all ages.
