Inter U3A Quiz Night - 26/03/19

This was the third running of this popular and enjoyable evening event. Many thanks to Helen Salisbury and her hard-working crew from South Leicestershire U3A for making this a great success. Helen writes:

"Fourteen teams from the Leicestershire & Rutland Group of U3As took part in a highly successful, fun quiz evening yesterday, organised by SLU3A at the Conservative Club, Market Harborough. Bob Morris was quiz master, taking team members through his 8 rounds of questions, encompassing his own take on life and sense of humour. Homemade cake (some of it made by our own Bake Off celebrity, Frances Quinn) and drinks helped the grey matter to keep working.

The end of the evening was tense with a tie breaker question needed to decide the winning team. ‘Lutterworth Youth U3A’ came up with the closest answer."
