Quizzers Cram into The Star for a Good Cause

So, you CAN fit a pint pot into a half pint! Last night at The Star Charity Quiz just proved it!

We are all very grateful to Richard, the Landlord, for working hard to have the Quiz. It would have been so easy to have cancelled the event, considering the dining room is in the middle of a major refurbishment, but he battled on and there we all were.

80 quizzers were crammed into the bar and lounge, thanks to an imaginative use of space! Gordon and I were behind a pillar under an Acrow Prop, but we were very happy!

The Quiz was in aid of Guiding Light, a Kettering Christian Youth group, and we raised £221.85. Thank you to the Guiding Light team who conjured up the biggest raffle ever!!

The results of the Quiz were: in 4th place with 79 points were The Topical Team; in 2nd place equally tied with 81 points, were The Old Bags and NFN.

In first place with 82 points was Geddington Goers!  When interviewed on their success, they put it down to old fashioned knowledge of proverbs!! ( The picture round was old proverbs . ie Empty Vessels Make the Most Noise )


The next Quiz is on Tuesday 23rd April and is in aid of Women’s Institute. Please book your tables and numbers by ringing or going in to the bar and register your team name and numbers.
