This week’s connect 4 lotto numbers were 2 – 14 – 13 – 3 with no jackpot winner.

Our next lotto draw takes place on Tuesday 5th March in the committee room at 9pm.
Do you support our club lotto? Have you a lotto seller that calls at your house to sell lotto? Would you like a lotto seller to call at your house to sell lotto so that you can support the club that supports you and your children or grandchildren?  Would you consider accepting a club lotto book and selling 3-5 lotto tickets each week and having a committee member call weekly to collect your tickets?  The club requires more lotto sellers so if you would be interested in helping the club out with this please contact any committee member.
