Group quiz and harvest

Group quiz - John Bonas was the quiz master at a quiz night held in the Heneage Arms Community Pub at Hainton and the 14 teams competing were set a challenging blank map as the introductory warm up.

The teams had to place all 44 counties in England correctly, which kept them puzzling throughout the evening, and three teams managed to place them all.

There were plenty more questions for them to ponder over, too.

Thanks were expressed to John for doing duty as question master and to Simon for his hospitality.

Generous donations of food for supper and prizes for the raffle were also appreciated and enjoyed and all were pleased to learn proceeds for the Barkwith Group funds amounted to around £250.

Harvest supper - A very successful harvest supper held in aid of St Mary’s Church raised £1,017, as everything for the evening was donated and the only expense was the £40 hire fee for the village hall.

A total of 77 people sat down to supper, with the main course donated by TWG Wealth Management of East Barkwith.

All were then able to make their choice from the large selection of delicious desserts all made and donated by church members and friends.

The meal ended with home made chocolates, made by Maxine Gibson, served with tea and coffee.

Thanks go to everyone who attended and all who helped serve the meal and assisted with the washing up contributing to a very successful evening.
