A WESTON-based volunteer group is holding a number of fundraisers in the New Year to support The Playhouse Theatre.

After starting 2024 with a coffee morning on January 6, The Friends Of The Playhouse are proceeding with their efforts.

A general knowledge quiz, scheduled for Saturday January 20 during the usual coffee morning, is set to be one of the highlights, with a  charge of £1 per person to enter.

Even if you are not interested in taking part in the quiz, organisers encourage people to pay a visit and enjoy the event.

The group's efforts don't stop there.

On Saturday January 27, a quarterly draw of The Millenium Club will take place, promising a first prize of £50.

To reserve numbers, show up at the coffee morning and speak to a member of the committee.
