The final was exciting and evenly matched to start but again in round 3 T.M.P. did really well and scored full points. In fact they didn't drop a point on any question, scored 40 in total and went ahead to win the trophy.
The Tennis Club have entered every year with 1 or 2 teams since the quiz started and I think this was their 1st final. Well done.
Congratulations to T.M.P. and their brilliant performance. They hold the trophy for a 2nd year.
Thanks were given to the Community Centre Committee for all their involvement, to the question collectors- Gill Hand, Kath Miles and Margaret Dixon.
I would like to thank the teams who entered, they form the most important part of the evenings. It is not always easy to find 4/5 who will happily join in.
I recall in the very early days of the quiz the children from the village did the scoring with flip over numbers hanging from the stage (not sure how accurate that was ) I haven't seen many of them (now aged 40-50 ) returning to be in teams.
One of the best village quizzes to date. A great atmosphere and excellent matches.
