Pub Quiz and Lunch

The Pub Quiz took place on the 13th November when we 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, 11th December at 12 noon.  Please note I shall be retiring as Pub Quizmaster after the December Quiz and Angela and Christine will be taking over.
