On the evening of Friday, 24th May, a lively and enjoyable Quiz Night was held at Milford Methodist Church when, in a spirit of friendly rivalry and of co-operative effort, well over 30 willing participants entered a Quiz.
SIX competing teams were formed, and it was a pleasure to be able to welcome new friends amongst us for the occasion.
Under the experienced leadership of a kindly “Quiz Master” we were guided through SIX rounds of challenging questions, the questions in each “round” being based on a specific area of knowledge. A well-earn3d light supper, served at the mid-point of the quiz, revived our energy levels as we completed the task of searching for all the answers which were testing the varied knowledge and combined memories of each team. The teams could choose to play two Jokers – one in each half of the quiz – thereby doubling their points score for the chosen round. The evening proved to be a happy occasion full of chatter, fun, serious thinking, and also some fund-raising – the profits from the evening totalling £197.52p for church funds.
Very mindful of the fact that our shared enjoyment of this evening “get-together” would not have been possible without the organising skills and the hard work of a small group of people, we say a special “thank you” to Margaret and Alan Boyce; to our Quiz Master Peter Buchner and his helpers: Joy, Di, Janine, Julie and Mary; and to Meredith and Peter Drury.
