Richard Glover once again asked the questions and Ian and Esmay Amour carefully tallied the official scoreboard points. Desnie Pack was the raffle and prize co-ordinator and was always on the ball, while Rod Pack and Geoff Baker were the evening runners. Questions came hard and fast as they say, with Table 2 powering through as the winners. The evening could not have taken place without the effort put in by the committee members.
Generous donations towards the evening were supplied by Mayfield Mews, Bowning Hotel and Restaurant, Old and Lovely Antiques, Skillin’s Wood, RolloninCafé, Barneys Cafe at Bookham, Bogo Quary, Blue Still Distillery and committee members.
Thank you to all who attended the memorable evening and to the wonderful businesses for their selfless donations. We all look forward to next year!
This coming Tuesday we are starting the new program ‘Transport’. Children are encouraged to bring along a toy related to this.
