The Curry Rivel & District Twinning Association held another of its popular quizzes in the Village Hall on Friday 6 April.
The event marks the last social get-together before the important 20th anniversary visit to our twinned town of Chevilly over the early May Bank Holiday.
As the quiz was open to all, it attracted almost 50 people — both members and non-members — whose "little grey cells" were challenged to questions on various topics. Quizmasters Geoff, Simon, Alison and Nahum compiled eight main rounds which called upon participants' knowledge of subjects as diverse Somerset, Gardening, Sport and Film, TV & Radio. Distributed halfway through the evening was the customary Fil Rouge round, this time comprising a sheet of questions where the answers were a number between 1 and 40 with each being allowed to appear only once.
At the end of the evening "The Bad Pennies" were declared the winning team — congratulations to Steve and Glenys Allinson, Rob and Paula Hewitt, Hazel Jordan and Ann Robertson. In recognition of their achievement they were presented with the Chairman's Cup by Barbara Hamlin, Chair of the Twinning Association, and also received wine and chocolates.
A raffle completed the evening and helped in the Association's fundraising efforts. A la prochaine!
