Reydon Community Quiz, the Christmas Edition, took place at Sole Bay Bowls Club on 14 December. The festive evening was led by guest quizmaster Jim, and nine teams enjoyed a suitably seasonal quiz presented in Jim's own inimitable style, ( Yes, we really did have a round entitled ‘Can you smell carrots?’!) and including a Christmas songs round which sent us all home humming ‘We wish you a Wombling Merry Christmas’!
After a very entertaining evening, the top three placed teams were, in third place ‘If Onlys’ (104 points in second place ‘What, No Broadside?’ (115 points ), and winners ‘Treacle Tarts’ (117 points.) Thanks to all the other teams who took part this month- ‘Threes Company’, ‘Kirby Caners’, ‘ Full English’, ‘What the Eck’,’ Who are we? and ‘Dun Thinking’. A special mention to ‘Threes Company', for their festive hats, jumpers and fairy lights, and also for scoring zero on the first round with great aplomb!
The evening raised a wonderful £356.60p, and this month’s funds will be donated to Cathy Ryan for use in her Sole Bay Care Fund charity, and particularly for resources to support her current initiative for those in our community living with dementia.
The quizzers were delighted to receive a note from the local branch of Suffolk Wildlife Trust, thanking us for last month’s donation in memory of quizzer Susi Pearson, and telling us that part of the money would be spent on a bat hibernation and breeding box at Reydon Wood.
As always many thanks to the Bowls Club for hosting the quiz, to quizmaster Jim, score master Barrie Remblance, barman Ray Skit, this month’s raffle organisers Nicky Craigie and SteveRenwick and all the competitors. A Happy 2019 to you all, and thank you for all your support of our Community Quiz.
The next Reydon Community Quiz will be at the Bowls Club on Friday 18 January. There may be spaces for an extra team or two, if interested please contact quiz coordinator Amanda on email@example.com
