Its eyes down, in the Village Club Room*, at 7.30 pm on the second Friday of every month. There are great prizes and free teas, coffees and other refreshments, with the proceeds going to acquire equipment for the new Village Hall.
The Filby Bingo was started nearly twenty years ago, on October 31st 1995. Then, Pat Bell was given £50 a month for prizes to cover both the Bingo and the Raffle. Today, a team of six of the ladies, all on the Playing Field Committee, shop for prizes, twice a year. Today, we get £120 a month for 25 Bingo prizes and 10 Raffle prizes but it gets harder to keep within that budget.
In the Village Club Room, we can accommodate 40 people and, at the moment, we average an attendance of about 35. The new Hall is up and running and, hopefully, we will increase in numbers which, in turn, will mean the prize money will go up, again.
