Once again, we are grateful to all those who purchased our quiz, and particularly to those who sent their answers in. We value all feedback, and also derive pleasure from the delight shown by some who have improved their scores since we began producing them. Apart from the winner’s prize, there was a request for a ‘wooden spoon’ prize, also!

We will be printing the next quiz in time for the Christmas Dinner (14th December), and it will run until the end of the year.

Pat assures us she still enjoys compiling them, and generously prints them for us, too. Many thanks Pat…our followers look forward to the next edition!
