Thank you to all those who attended the PA Quiz Night last Saturday. We had 7 teams competing for the top prize and by a marginal half a point the winners were ‘The Usual Suspects’ followed very closely by ‘Quiz Team Aguilera’. Holding their position again at last place were ‘No Eyed Deers!!’All the teams did extremely well and managed to entertain us with a bit of singing! If you were unable to attend do not worry, we will be having another Quiz Night towards the end of the year.
