Money for playing

Spring Grand Draw
It was one o’clock in the Ox & Plough and time for the picking out of the winning tickets in the Spring Grand Draw. It had been organised by the Bucks Just Play Group who are raising money for the refurbishment of the Old Buckenham children’s playground.
There were 24 prizes to be won, starting with £100 cash and continuing with other cash prizes and vouchers for all sorts of items from pub meals, museum entrance, a tour of a whisky distillery, theatre tickets and a trip on a narrow gauge railway.
Landlady Sally Bishop picked out the first ticket and other regulars at the pub and supporters of the Bucks Just Play Group took their turns to pick out the rest.
There were plenty of cheerful people in the village who had been rewarded for their generosity in buying tickets but the biggest cheer was for the announcement that the draw had raised the sum of £1579 towards the playground refurbishment.
