Please bring a cheque, made payable to Ravenshead U3A Social Account or cash, to the value of the number of tickets required.
Tickets available from Judith Moore and Alan Walker
The quiz night is designed to be for RU3A members only, and as such you do not need to be part of a ‘team’. However, on the night, it will be best to group together in fours in order to work together on the ‘table quizzes’ and also for us to plan for prizes.
Please note that the Village Hall bar will be available at this event.
We do hope you can make it!
