We meet at a convenient local hall with parking a good bus connections. Please contact Wendy White for more information.
Due to the popularity of the Quiz group we now hold our Quiz on the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays of the month.
On the first Tuesday of the month the doors will open at 6:45pm. & we finish around 9:15pm. (NB for this group we will use the separate hall at the back of the main building with entrance at the rear). The quiz on the 3rd Tuesday has changed to the afternoon. It starts at 2:00pm. through to 4:15pm. with the doors opening at 1:45pm.
I hope that all you "would-be" quizzers who don't like coming out on cold nights will come along to our afternoon sessions & give us a try. You'll be very welcome. Of course I look forward to seeing all the familiar faces too.

As we enter a new decade we were given a list of 10 pairs of events that took place in each year of the past decade. We had to work out which year. Get one year wrong then another must be wrong. Much more difficult than it seemed at first look!
Hope to see you at our next afternoon session on 21st January.
