Another one of the monthly events at the Parish Hall brings the return of Quiz Night with a special treat of fresh Fish 'n' Chips.
These popular events on a Saturday evening help to support the Parish Hall introduce new facilities that will ensure it is functional for all the needs of the community for all events at all times.
It's another opportunity to get together with friends and test your general knowledge against the questions asked in this (not too serious) competition where all are invited.
Another intellectual evening where brains will be tested to come up with the answers to Barbara's amazing, and sometimes baffling, quiz questions.
The last quiz attracted 38 in The Kings Arms.
Nibbles for everyone during the break at half-time after 20 questions with just enough salt to encourage another drink before the next session of 20 questions.
Lots of whispering and potential answers being written on scraps of paper demonstrated the professionalism and excitement of everyone in the fun of choosing the right answers.
If you're up for having a go to win the big prize......... be there on Tuesday 26th March at 7:30 pm.
