Bingo Mad!



Had a really enjoyable evening with the office staff at Buckingham Bingo, Parrs Wood last night. I was sweating on a number for the National link game; really thought it was my lucky night!
Bingo Halls have been struggling recently with the recession, resulting in falling revenues and membership. I had previously raised the issue with the Chancellor of the Exechequer, voting to oppose an increase in tax that bingo clubs pay on their gross profits.
Bingo provides a great deal of enjoyment for many people in the local community to have a cheap night out, particularly the elderly. The industry has been hit hard by the Government in recent years and hasn't been helped by having extra tax placed upon them.
