POOL QUIZ – The recent quiz night at the Turnor Arms, hosted by former BBC Radio Lincolnshire presenter Dave Bussey, proved to be a great night out, enjoyed by all.

At the end of the evening a total of £200 had been raised, which will go towards the pool fundraising.

Thanks go to Dave, who was an excellent host and, with the wide variety of questions, entertained everyone.

Thanks also go to the landlord of The Turnor Arms, who provided the venue free of charge.
