Our October quiz night was a real treat, both for our brains and our tummies. The evening took place in main body of the church itself, which created a warm, sociable atmosphere for the hopeful teams. Then some of the rounds dreamed up by Quizmaster Simon Tooley were delightfully unusual. So, for the music round our organist Ann Gristwood played excerpts from hymns: we had to work out the first line, search for the correct number in the hymn books provided and write down the number. There was also a self-contained children’s quiz for our younger team members involving cartoon characters and maths questions. Keen ornithologists got to shine in the bird round and the dingbats were, as ever, the source of great frustration and hilarity. Midway through the evening we were treated to a Turner’s Pies takeaway delivery, complete with mushy peas and gravy – delicious! The evening was rounded off with a raffle, then the auction of a horseshoe pumpkin candle-holder crafted by Churchwarden and Farrier Stephen Cox-Rusbridge, boosting the handsome sum raised by the event for our Raise the Roof appeal.
