Quiz Night Result

The quiz was attended by 50 people, not as many as other years, but we were competing with a function at Manton on the same night. Refreshments were the usually homemade soups and a selection of bite size desserts.

Winners of the quiz were Tom and Jane Gilmore and Richard and I collectively known as “Batemores”!

There was about ten raffle prizes, so I can’t tell you who got what really, just that it was well supported, as was the bar, which culminated in a final total of £663.00 with all expenses paid.

Thanks to all concerned.

We wonder if sufficient people would be interested in a coach trip from Wing ?
We think the coach and admission would be £55 -£60 (no concession’s)  It will be non-profitmaking venture.
It is a long way ahead, but all we need at present is an expression of interest to see if there is any point getting costings for a coach etc. We would need a firm commitment and 50% deposit in the spring.

If interested in more information,please contact Joanne Beaver  737286 or Judith Leahy 737199, leaving your name and a contact telephone number by 10 January.
