Boys' Brigade Quiz Night

Home » News » Boys' Brigade Quiz Night

On Saturday 28th Jan over 50 people gathered to test their knowledge of such things as Latin words for different types of murder, events in the 1990's and the question of whether certain famous people were still alive. There was a definite air of competition but overwhelmingly it was an evening of fun and friendship with only a few challenges to the question master's decisions!

Unfortunately the church heating was slow to do what it's supposed to do but a substantial and delicious buffet took minds off the cold and it was fairly cosy by the end of the evening.

The Boys' Brigade is very grateful for those who attended as they've boosted dwindling and much needed Company funds by over £280. Thank you very much.

Sorry, but there's no photo of the event — everyone was much too engrossed with the quiz to remember to take any!
