Super Quiz supports The Yews

President Mike Kirk explains

The (now, it seems, annual) Super Quiz was held again in the Wivelsfield Village Hall on Friday 4 February.

A full house of punters enjoyed a Game Pie supper and then a quiz of highly intellectual proportions – designed, masterminded, run and adjudicated by Vice-President Geoff Dew.

A raffle helped to swell the funds to £1500, all to support The Yews project in Haywards Heath.

Ladies' Lunch & Roadshow

President Geoff Dew's top tableWhat connects these treasures?Rapt audience

The 2011 Ladies' Lunch was held at Newick Park hotel and restaurant on Tuesday 29 November when the post-lunch talk was given by Lennox Cato from Edenbridge, a regular panelist on BBC's "Antiques Road Show."

Before the talk, members and guests were invited to identify the connection between the antiques on a display table: all to do with Indian tea custom, apparently.
