Bingo winners at The Railway Arms

Many thanks to Sam, staff and customers at The Railway Arms, for the Easter Bingo event. Fun and laughter accompanied Sam calling the numbers for the winning lines and “House!” was shouted out by excited winning participants. The regular customers in for a ‘quiet’ drink on a Friday night also did their part by donating towards the evenings fundraising. Together they raised a fantastic £300. Thank you.

Platinum Jubilee June 2,3 and 4

The planning for the celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee at The Railway Arms, on Thursday June 2, Friday June 3 and Saturday June 4, is coming along very well, thanks to Jeff, Sam and Derek. Kibworth Garden Centre and Kibworth Wildlife Centre, two of local businesses supporting us with the event.

During the three days you can enjoy BBQs, bouncy castle, bucking bronco, cake stall, tombola, book and jigsaw stall with raffle tickets for super prizes. Try the “name the large teddy” game and lots more fun for all the family. There will also be amazing evening entertainment in the Railway Arms. More to follow on this.
