Pub Quiz and Lunch

The Pub Quiz took place on the 11th September when 22 of us met at The Nabb Inn.  All are welcome – we prefer a maximum of four to a team where possible as we can always add a person to another team if you would like to attend but haven’t got a team of your own.  Sometimes the quiz is easy and occasionally it is very hard, but the idea is to have a bit of fun and to socialise whilst enjoying a lunch.

The next Pub Lunch Quiz will be on Monday, 9th October at 12 noon.  Please note I shall be retiring as Pub Quizmaster after the December Quiz and we have decided that each team will take it in turn to organise a month. The quizzes etc for that year are all in a folder ready to go so it just means turning up, reading out the questions and answers and taking the £1 entry fee.  It would be a pity if the Pub Quiz Group folded as those attending enjoy not just the quiz but the lunch and good company.
