This year’s Village Quiz, held on February 4th, was, appropriately enough, a great example of the Olympic spirit in action. Taking part was far more important than winning.
This was demonstrated by the two teams that contested last place and achieved the same score, 58 points. A tie-breaker “What is the length of the Nile?” was needed to separate them and decide who took home the coveted wooden spoons. “Norfolk and Chance” who were closest to the correct answer — 4,132 miles! — achieved this notable distinction.
Ten teams took part and enjoyed a great evening with an excellent meal at half time. The winners were “Poppy’s People” aka “The Hanners” with 83 points but it was a close run thing with 5 points covering the top three places.
Thanks must go to all those who contributed to the event but particularly to the question-mistresses, Denise and Julie, and to Kath who did a great job organising the food.
