The letter thanks us for the donation and tells of his it is put to use supporting wounded soldiers and their families. If you read on, you will see a scanned copy of the letter.

Tidy Cupboard – Changes Afoot

Posted by on: Friday, Jul. 1st 2016 12:36 AM

As you will all know, for some time now we have seen a drop in the number of players in the Tidy Cupboard. This has continued for a while now and David and I have made a decision to change things around a little.

Rather than lose the room completely, something we don’t want to do, we’re going to try and revive it. How we plan to do that may sound a little odd but there is a method in our madness. However, it does mean that from 1st August 2016 the Cupboard is only to be open on the 1st Tuesday of every month.

Loyalty Rewarded At Tidy Bingo

Posted by on: Monday, Apr. 4th 2016 2:47 PM

As regulars at Tidy Bingo will know, the network offers a loyalty reward scheme that sees you earn extra bonuses, cash back etc. as you rise through the ranks. As a little something extra, we’re going to introduce a form of loyalty scheme into the Tidy Cupboard too.

As you will have noticed, player numbers have been dropping of late in the Cupboard and as such, it doesn’t remain viable to keep giving away as many loyalty points as we have been whilst player numbers diminish.

Tidy Bingo Up For Best Jumpman Gaming Bingo Site

Posted by on: Monday, Apr. 4th 2016 1:23 PM

The Which Bingo Award shortlist has been announced today and once again Tidy Bingo has received a nomination. This year there isn’t a Best Boutique Bingo Site, the category we usually find ourselves in. For 2016, we have been nominated as Best Jumpman Gaming Bingo Site and for the first time since we launched, we’re going to put a bit of effort into winning.

It’s not that we don’t want to win, of course it isn’t, but we are always competing with brands we have bigger budgets and more players so it often feels like we are a non-starter. This year however, only five of the brands under the Jumpman Gaming hat have been nominated so our odds of winning are slightly better!

Catchphrase Competition – March 2016

Posted by on: Thursday, Feb. 25th 2016 1:29 PM

Can you believe it’s nearly March already? It seems like only yesterday that we were running Christmas competitions and rummaging in Santa’s Sack! Anyway, as the year rolls on, it’s time for another Catchphrase competition and your chance to win a selection of Tidy branded goods, maybe some Help For Heroes bits and bobs and even some bonus funds!

This time we’re going to do things a little differently (not much) and will be sending the competition by internal mail, external mail and posting on Facebook. We’re hoping this gets more people involved and who knows, with enough entries – we might even throw in a few extra prizes!

Ham And Egg Cups

Posted by on: Sunday, Jan. 24th 2016 5:36 PM

As some of you may know, I’m currently with Slimming World trying to shed a few stone. If you’ve never done this diet before then it’s worth knowing that foods are divided into categories and it is actually the only diet that I have done that I have found really easy to stick to. The only thing that I am not completely comfortable with is the weekly meetings, and whilst I know many get a lot from the meetings – they don’t really do it for me. If any of you guys want to slim along with me – feel free. I lost 6.5lbs in my first week….

That said, I have paid for 10 sessions, so I will do those and then probably just continue alone at home. Anyway, I digress, the reason for this blog post was to share one of the recipes that I made today, one that I really enjoyed and takes hardly any time to make. It’s a free food, so you can eat as many of these as you want.

Free Jackpot Game – The Outcome

Posted by on: Saturday, Jan. 23rd 2016 9:50 PM

I thought that I’d sit in the room and watch our biggest every free game take place tonight, the big £1000 jackpot. I wanted to see who were winners, and of course, report the outcome to all the Tidy Bingo players who were otherwise engaged.

In total there were a whopping 4,437 when the game got underway and I was on tenterhooks (as I am sure the players in the room were too).

Thank You, Thank You And Again, Thank You

Posted by on: Tuesday, Dec. 22nd 2015 7:38 PM

There are many things that I love about Tidy and for those of you that know me, you’ll know that it has always been a dream of mine to run my own bingo site. From player, to host, from host to writer and then writer to site owner, it took me ten years to get here but I did.

There have been ups and downs, as our blog readers know, but one of the biggest ups happened this week. Quietly beavering away in my office, the doorbell rings with a delivery…..

10 Things You May Not Know About Cags

Posted by on: Tuesday, May. 26th 2015 12:05 AM

Continuing on with our 10 Things You May Not Know we have another player who has taken the pull by the proverbial horns and submitted her 10 Things. Cags is the player who is in the hot seat for this post and it’s a really interesting read. Funny how you can know someone for so long and actually not know that much isn’t it?

The best way to do this going forward, in my opinion anyway, is with nominations – the player who last did the 10 Things post gets to choose who is next. As Cags mentions tickleme, I’m going to insist that she is the next to submit her 10 Things!

Enough of my waffle…

10 Things You May Not Know About Cags

(as written by her)

1. At school I was so evil; I smoked, shop lifted and was the biggest bully ever. I’m not proud of but at the school I went to (and remember it was a few years ago now) it was be a bully or get bullied. Let’s skip the school days!

2. I Ieft school at 16 because I could not wait to start earning money. I didn’t achieve any paper qualifications from school but nevertheless landed my first job as a dental assistant. I loved that job and had to be the fastest filling mixer ever!

3. At 17 my parents got a job to run the local golf club. It was a nice change for my Dad who was a slaughter man by trade, a trade that was very heavy work. It meant that I had the biggest garden ever. When the winter came, parents and their kids all descended on the club for sledging.

Whilst living on the golf course I was lucky enough to meet the one and only Seve Ballesteros (RIP) – he was HOT!

We lived there just five months as sadly my Dad suffered a heart attack and died at the age of 46.

4. At age 18 I went on to work for a plastics factory and that’s where I met my hubby Noel. We got married in 1980 and just two years later I was expecting our first child. Sadly the baby was stillborn at 38 weeks. Life goes on and I got pregnant again and gave birth to my son Anthony. He is my world!
I’ve now been married 35 years this July. The secret is to always be the boss!

5. My brother owned a cafe and after my son was born I went to work for him. I loved the early starts early finishes. I even enjoyed frying 60 eggs a time for sandwich orders. Sadly my brother passed away in 2001 with a burst ulcer aged just 41.

6. In 2004 I was sat at home bored when I found a new bingo site called Think Bingo. I joined up and at that time there was just one room and only six players, a bit like OMB now! The site soon got busy and I made lots of friends. Boy did I need friends – things had been pretty tough.

7. It wasn’t long until we had a Think Bingo meet in Cardiff at Grots house aka Kath. This is where I met our super CM, Sarah aka Blondie and the dreaded Miss Vidal Sassoon aka Nickie. Nickie offered to do my hair and OMG I had to wear a hat all night, that’s all I’m saying!

8. Soon I was joining other bingo sites like you do and found Foxy Bingo.
I have been on a few meets with Foxy in the early days. One meet was a cruise to Bruges. OMG what a cruise that was! We kidnapped a cardboard Foxy (we being Rots, Jackie and myself, along with some others) and hid him in our cabin. Pictures are on BallsUp if you would like to view, I’m sure Nickie can add the link here.

Yes Cags, I can – you’re demands are always met (not so much in the hairstyling department though)!

Foxy Bingo Kidnapped by Forum Members

9. I’ve met the awesome David Essex at a book signing in York. I’m his biggest fan and been to tons of his concerts. I was going to ask lots of questions but I was star struck and stumbling over my words!

10. I cheated on Noel and I have a secret love child. Beckham is the daddy!

This has taken me ages to type so if you read please leave a reply (especially you tickleme)!
