The annual summer Quiz ‘n’ Chips night organised by Ashwellthorpe Village Hall Committee was held at the Village Hall on Saturday 15 August 2015 – a full report appears on the Village Hall > Events Report Page but thanks go to Questionmasters Ray and Sue for researching and asking the questions and verifying the answers, and to John and Morris for collecting all the food from Wymondham. Most importantly, Ray was able to present a cheque for £1,143 to East Anglian Children’s Hospices, received on their behalf by Margaret Neilson, from his collection at various quizzes over the last year. He raised another £93 on the night.
The Quiz was won by Up Dawson’s Creek with 146 points; 2nd Hawaii Five-O with 139 points and joint 3rd were the Bunch of Fives team and R & B team, with 135 points.
Instead of the usual raffle for Village Hall funds, an announcement was made by Nick de Spon, Parish Councillor, that one Defibrillator had been purchased and had been installed at Ashwellthorpe Village Hall and another one was planned for a site in Fundenhall. To this end “The Big 600 Defibrillator Raffle” had been set up and tickets were sold on the night raising £165 – more details elsewhere on our website, but this Raffle continues into October with the Draw being made at the Parish Council Meeting on Tuesday 20 October 2015.
