The latest postal quiz has come to an end, many thanks to everyone who continues to support them. The latest one had answers that were all sweets and chocolates, great for diabetics! We had three entries with 100 correct answers and names were put into a draw and Wendy Hardy’s was drawn. Well done to her and thank you too as she has kindly given back her prize to go in the funds for hte get together lunches at Christmas. We will be giving the charity £200. The next one will be out at the end of September and all the answers this time will be famouspeople/characters with place name in their name.
