A Fabulous £500 made for the Village Hall
We had a great night at our Quiz on Saturday 21st October. Almost 50 people came along to the Village Hall and enjoyed an excellent Quiz and a lovely supper of pie & Mash with home made puddings for afters.
Sandra and Janet compiled the sometimes easy, sometimes difficult to answer questions ably assisted by Joan on Scoring. Jeanne and her team did a great job organising the food.
CM Sports & Social Club promoted the event wth all proceeds going to the Village Hall and Chairman of the Village Hall Trustees David Barrett gave a vote of thanks to everyone who had helped to make the evening such a success.
