Pub Quiz and Lunch

I’m happy to say that Stefan, Manager at The Nabb Inn, will be pleased to welcome the U3A Pub Quiz & Lunch back this autumn – unfortunately the bad news is the Nabb Inn will be closed for refurbishment for the whole of October so we hope to commence on the second Monday in November which is the 8th and then on 13th December, at 12 noon.

Seating is limited to 32 members so please let me know if you would like to attend. Just to remind you, on arrival please make a note of your table number then order your lunch/drinks at the bar. However it’s not necessary to have a lunch if you don’t wish to eat.

We start with a short table puzzle, then on to the main quiz. After lunch we get the answers! We usually have a small free raffle for which prizes would be gratefully received. There is a charge of £1 per head, the total of which (less expenses) is divided between the winning team and the runners up. We look forward to getting our brains back into gear; it’s been twenty months since we last met!
