Villages in North Yorkshire Quiz Results

Monday, November 4th 2013

Many thanks, once again, to all those who supported the Quiz. This was the most successful in terms of those who purchased it, and well over a hundred were sold. So far, somewhere in the region of £500 has been raised to help towards the running costs of the reserve. Our gratitude to Pat Thistlethwaite who spends many hours compiling the clues, and is already thinking of the next one! Thanks to Glennis and Joan for all their hard work and sales tactics!

The results:

Tony and Lilian Cooper 39

Michael Fenwick 39

Viv Winter 38

Ted and Val Darwin 38

Mr and Mrs Whitehead 37

Trish Illingworth 33

As there were two people with 39, their names were put into a hat, and the winners of the £10 voucher are Tony and Lilian Cooper. Congratulations to you both!
