The Ramsden 200 Club is the Village's monthly lottery, managed by members of the Memorial Hall Committee. It is based on a weekly contribution of £1, collected either monthly, quarterly, biannually or annually and the funds raised are divided equally between our two most important buildings, the Memorial Hall and St James' Church. Each year the club raises some £1400 for each.
And each year the club pays out nearly £1200 in prizes. A monthly draw is held in the Royal Oak pub at about 9.00pm on the last Friday of each month when two prizes of £50 and £25 are won. Additionally there is a generous Royal Oak prize of a £50 meal voucher which can only be won if the club member whose card is drawn is present at the draw.... and several members have been lucky winners.
There are special Christmas prizes of £250 and £100.
Currently there are around 100 members of the club, mainly villagers but also including friends of the village from far and near. Please encourage your friends or relations to join - more members mean more prizes!
