Quiz Night 2018

Stuart and Oonagh Maltby took over the Quiz Master role this year and we think the event went down well.  Everyone had a good evening at the Shirland Miners Welfare.  The Winners of the Wine, Chocolates and Voucher for a meal at Nando's were the 'Swiss Villans' with an impressive 77 points.  The winners of the wooden spoons this year were the 'Bullawayo Birds', however there were only two people on the team so we think they did a fine job!! £94.60 was raised towards PTFA funds.
