POTTER CUP QUIZ 2019 Saturday 16th March 2019 ‘NOW IT’S SPRING’

Dear Potential Quizzers and Supporters of the Hughenden Valley Potter Cup Quiz,

As most of you are aware the Potter Quiz was, for a number of reasons moved from the Autumn to the Spring.

So this year’s quiz is on SATURDAY 16th MARCH.

We are again following the approach of continuing to make it less complex to allow more time for socialising.

Also the price has once again been maintained at only £10 per person and this includes the good quality buffet. Please remember that the proceeds from the Potter Quiz are ‘ring fenced’ for the Senior Citizens function which will be held in the Summer.

More details of the Potter Quiz event are:

  • DATE: Saturday 16th March 2019
  • TIME: 7.00 for 7.30 prompt start
  • THEME: ‘NOW IT’S SPRING’
  • COST:  £10 per head, which will include a good quality buffet
  • TEAM SIZE: Optimum size 8 please, but a little bit of leeway is allowed
  • TEAM NAME: Your choice
  • FANCY DRESS (Linked to the Theme): Optional
  • DRINKS: Bring your own drinks & glasses

Would you please advise me if you would like to put in a team, together with the likely numbers so that we can organise food, etc.

If you do have any related queries please don’t hesitate to contact me.

 

ALSO PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TO YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS

Thanks for your support

Kind Regards
Al

santaThe Christmas Bazaar and Craft Fayre is on the afternoon of Saturday 25th November in the Village Hall, starting at 2.00pm. The event will feature a Craft area for stalls selling stationery, jewellery and gifts and there will be the usual drinks and refreshments.

We need plenty of donations of bottles and tins, chocolates or sweets (please check the ‘best before’ date), unwanted new gifts, toiletries, toys, games, jigsaws and books, suitable for adults or children.

The tombolas are very popular, so please give generously to ensure fun for all. You may forward items through your Road Rep if they leave you a flyer or you may bring items to the Village Hall on the morning of Saturday 25th from 9.30am. If you have a large amount to donate and cannot make other arrangements, please email this address: eidyllion61@yahoo.co.uk or phone Janet Idle on 01494 563673.
