It will soon be time to renew Bigger Ernie subscriptions for 2021, or indeed join for the first time. For the benefit of any "newbies", Bigger Ernie is our village lottery - the cost is a measly £12 per year per ticket, and you can purchase as many tickets as you like. There are monthly draws with first, second and third prizes - the amounts are still to be determined but the prizes in 2020 have been £30, £15 and £10, plus the occasional bonus draw (see details on p6 for this year's Christmas Bonus Draw). 50% of the finds raised are allocated to prizes, with the other 50% contributing to BVA funds - a most worthy cause I'm sure you will agree. Under normal circumstances, the draws are made at the monthly Friday Village Inn, but in these challenging times Ray and Janyne are doing a great job of finding innovative ways of making the draws fairly and transparently.
Results are also published each month in the magazine and here.
Big news for the Bigger Ernie in 2021 - We have an alternative way you can pay your Bigger Ernie subscriptions in the form of electronic payments. Cheques and cash are still acceptable. Cheques should be made payable to “Brettenham Village Association”. If you prefer to pay electronically the bank account number is 10197165 and sort code is 20-82-75. It is important that in the narrative of the bank transfer you state your name. Please also send an email to Ray at email@example.com with the date of your transfer, amount, and ticket holder names.
The BVA appreciates your continued support.
