BF Quiz 2014 winning 'Misfits'

Fourth Big Friends Quiz in aid of Friends of St Mary's Fabric Fund

The little grey cells were working overtime last Friday evening in the village hall when nearly a hundred people gathered to pit their general knowledge skills against one another.

After a hard fought contest, the 'Misfits' squeaked into the first place, thereby proving that some school teachers are not as daft as their pupils claim!

Their winning efforts were rewarded with the 'Big Friends Quiz' cup and a bottle of wine each.

All contestants enjoyed an excellent sausage, mash and peas supper with bangers from Parminters and spuds from Blooming Fruity. Many thanks to the Fish and Chip shop for peeling the potatoes and to the Garden centre and others for raffle prizes.

The question master once again was Rich Butler — many thanks to him for a varied and enjoyable range of questions. The 'next in the sequence' round was particularly popular.

Just over £1000 was raised towards maintenance and restoration of the village's beautiful parish church and churchyard.

If you'd like to help maintain the fabric and surrounds of St Mary's church, you can find out more about the Friends of St Mary's by getting in touch with Juanita Hughes (07950 196516) or Tricia Stradling (01844 291607). Or email jandjhughes@btinternet.com.

There are some things we can take for granted at Aperitif Recitals and they are that the wine, soft drinks and canap├ęs will be excellent but especially so will be the music. Peter Shepherd, the twenty three year old organist of the Collegiate Church of St Bride Glasgow, lived up to expectations during his recital at St Mary's Church on 18th October when he performed an attractive mixture...
