Llys y Dderwen Welcomes a New Bingo Lunch Club

 In Gwendraeth Valley a new lunch club has been gathering attention. Starting last month at Gwendraeth Valley there has been a weekly lunch. Activities include bingo, and members of the community are invited to participate. Come for lunch and join in on the bingo fun and food. This exciting weekly event is held at the Llys y Dderwen Sheltered Housing Scheme, which is located in Ponthenri. The club was formed last month, and folks are invited to join in the festivities.

That’s the Way we Do It

There are typically 2 main types of bingo that are played around the world. There’s the 75-ball version & the 90-ball version. The former game of bingo is played with a card that has a 5 by 5 grid. The center square tends to be marked as a free spot. On the top of the card, the letters B-I-N-G-O correspond to each column. Another type of bingo which is more widely played in the world is 90-ball type bingo. The game is played by a 9 by 3 card. Each line has 5 different numbers, with a total of 15 numbers on the card.Players can complete 1 line, 2 lines and a Full House to win games of 90-ball bingo.

Lunch for a Bunch

One of the officers at Sheltered Scheme indicated that he hoped that the club will become a popular venue for its patrons. They have a number of volunteers who dedicate their time to serve the participants. People are invited to join in the festivities for a delicious warm meal, exciting bingo games, and great conversation. The luncheon is a terrific way for people from all walks of life to come together and interact. The invitation is being extended to folks from neighboring communities – especially those currently living at Llys y Dderwen.
