Past Event

On April 8th we had our annual Wine and Wisdom quiz. Congratulations to Gilberts Gang for winning this years event. Thanks to Ros for excellent questions that tested our brain cells to the maximum and to Brendon for keeping the scores on the doors, even though his addition was a bit dubious at times!  The Village Hall members would like to thank Ros for all of her hard work that she has given in supporting and organising events over the years.  She is now stepping down from the committee and hoping to move on to pastures new.
