A new bingo group has been set up by a charity which aims to help individuals and community groups.

The Keystone Development Trust have launched the group at St John’s Community Centre in Mildenhall, which meets every Monday from 1.30pm.

The group, made up on men and women of varying ages, initially came together in October 2016 when several Bingo sessions were trialled.

The trial weeks proved very popular and people were eager to continue meeting on a regular basis.

A grant from Forest Heath District Council has enabled the group to buy their own bingo machine, books, dabbers and pay for venue hire.

The next stage is for a committee to be formed so they can become a self-sustaining group. Keystone will also continue to support the group.

For more information, call the centre on 01638 712598 or email or turn up and have a game.
