Mad Hatters Quiz Fundraiser
The hall was full, all tickets sold and everyone looking forward to our first quiz night after two years absence due to COVID. Those of us who had been to previous quiz nights knew that it would be an excellent evening. Those who were first timers soon found that out and am sure they will be eager to come again.

The theme for the night was the Mad Hatters Tea Party from Alice in Wonderland. I don't think I was on my own when I say I've never read the book. Of course we all probably know about Alice and the Mad Hatters tea party. I have to say that as expected our own tea party that evening was exceptional. Once again the caterers did us proud and we enjoyed a three course meal, the food as usual was delicious.

So, there we were, all in our hats and eagerly waiting for the questions. The quiz masters kept us on our toes with challenging questions. It's always a good indicator when no one falls asleep!

The queue at the well stocked tombola stall was soon quite long. Good prizes and they all went very quickly. This kept the boys very busy for much of the night.

Finally thanks to all who contributed to make this such an excellent evening, the cooks, the ladies in the kitchen serving the food, the quiz masters, the tombola boys and everyone who helped to make it such an enjoyable night.

Well, I don't know about you but I can't wait for next year. I think I said this before but if anyone can tell me where I could go for such a good evening and 3 course meal (with seconds) thrown in for a fiver then please let me know.
