A packed Village Hall saw residents and friends pit their brains against each other as 14 tables, comprising 84 participants took part in a fund-raising quiz on Saturday (November 17th).
Thanks go to the Village Hall Committee and its team of volunteers who organised the evening, staffed a well-stocked bar, cooked and served home-made cottage pie and rounded-up an impressive selection of donated prizes for a raffle.
What was particularly rewarding was the cross section of villagers, old, young and everything in between, who took part and made the evening a great success. They included people from all aspects of life in Hambledon; the shop and its volunteers, Merry Harriers pub regulars, its Bridge team, the church, the cricket and football teams and, of course the Village Hall itself.
The questions were well set and divided into 10 themed rounds. The winning team,” Here, There and Everywhere”, comprised Christine and Ron Baker, Duncan Watson, Charlotte Gray, Mary Burrows and Stewart Payne.
However, it was a close-run contest and several teams just missed out on the top spot, having answered a few more questions correctly but not used their “multiplier” as effectively.
All profits from the evening go towards the upkeep of the Village Hall, which has recently been undergoing an extensive refurbishment with new chairs and curtains.
There are a busy few days of entertainment coming up in the shire, with something for everyone.
Tickets are still available for “BOUNCERS” at the Village Hall on Saturday evening. Set in 1984, John Godber’s classic comic drama tells the story of a typical Northern nightclub and the colourful characters that inhabit its dance-floor. You can purchase tickets for £10 at the Village Shop or on the door on the night. Bring some cash for the bar, all bar proceeds benefit the Village Hall and the Village Shop.
Sunday afternoon brings with it the monthly Jazz at the Harriers. David Kirby and his friends will be playing from 3pm to 5pm. Maybe, if the sun stays out, we’ll be in the garden.
Tuesday 10th at 8pm is the monthly quiz at The Merry Harriers. Come along and see if you can beat the team from the the Village Shop (everyone did last month….).
13 tickets for the Hambledon Village Hall Quiz night on Saturday 13th May have been saved for someone at the Village Shop, no name was given or cash/cheque supplied.
I need to know the facts and will pay a reward for any information to solve this problem. Please contact John Tidmarsh by email or on 01428 682067. The reward is £10.
