    The All New Fun Quiz Night
    We’d been a bit short of Quizes recently in Winsford but that gap was more than adequately filled by The Fun Charity Quiz created and run by Steve Pickard and Jane Orchiston on Friday 7th February in the fabulous, and pretty warm, surrounds of the Village Hall.
    16 teams, and over 70 guests, participated in a 80 question and picture round quiz ,over the course of the evening with a superb Beef Goulash and Pasta a Veggie Shepherd’s Pie/Garlic bread supper served like lightening during the interval.The buzz was deafening as Steve announced we were on the starting line, and this turned to a whispering hush as teams desperately tried to conceal their answers! We, of course, all knew most of the answers but just couldn’t remember them!
    “Yes, I’m only here for the fun” was the cry of those lagging and the concentration was palpable in those teams who were really there to compete and win!
    Each 20 questions were marked and the countdown from 16th started….heck, we’re 11th!The winners were All for One from Bridgetown, who scored a remarkable 111 (?) points.
    After the quiz was over and the Raffle drawn , we participated in a final Heads and Tails round followed by a lot of clearing up etc…completed in about 30 mins and testimony to the Winsford Activities Team’s excellent organisation and drills
    So a big thank you to everyone who helped, participated and donated prizes for the raffle.
    The evening raised near;ly £750 for the Exmoor Pony Centre, a sure fire winner! 
    Next event is an Elvis Tribute NIght on 25th April with JD King, who is recognised as not only the best Elvis tribute act but possibly the best tribute act in the world! Watch out for the posters.
