The Horticultural Society Quiz
From Pegasus to polo, dinosaurs to Downton Abbey, Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot the questions were many and varied. THey started from the minute of arrival at the vILLAGE hall, where 20 questions were placed on each table to be pondered upon until pudding There was a distinct horticultural flavour to the quiz and the non-gardeners among us were really tested when given six freshly picked twigs to identify.
While our brains were being exercised, a delicious meal was served by an efficient team of smart young waitresses. following a Mediterranean sharing platter, most of the gentleman plumped for the steak and kidney pue and the ladies for the chicken breast or vegetarian option. THe meal was rounded off by a choice of excellent puddings.
Competition was fierce and resulted in a tie breaker. Each member of the winning ream was delighted to collect a bottle of wine, and the losers a packet of Smarties each! It was a very enjoyable and successful evening.
