EIGHT teams pitted their knowledge against each other at another successful Quiz Night at Booker Memorial Hall last Saturday. Victors were The Dipsticks with runners up The Mensa Rejects also going home with a prize. Many thanks to Garry for setting the questions and overseeing the event and to the Hall Committee for organising this enjoyable evening. Around £200 was raised for Hall funds.

BEECHLANDS residential home in Cressex Road is holding a sale of bric-a-brac and other goods on Sunday, 10am to midday. Proceeds will go towards Christmas decorations for the residents. This will be an important day at Beechlands as the mayor will be opening the new sensory room after the sale.
