Family support charity LOCAL Home-Start Winchester held its first Quiz Night at Itchen Abbas since the start of the pandemic, when sixteen highly competitive teams competed for victory in their quiz of fish from april.
The charity’s treasurer and chief moderator, Mike Davies, was again in charge and he provided a series of test questions that kept everyone entertained and on the edge of their seats. He was assisted by his wife Pauline who kept the scores and The Swot Team, with members from Itchen Abbas and Alresford, were the worthy winners with a score of 93 out of 110.
Raffle prizes included a factory tour and ice cream tasting at Judes; a round of golf at the Royal Winchester Golf Club, a day of fishing at Leckford Estates, a family ticket to Longstock Water Gardens, a meal for two at the Flowerpots Inn in Cheriton and the star prize of a week’s apartment in the Algarve was won by Juliette Wakes of Winchester.

A delicious ploughman’s supper and fudge brownies were prepared by Jo Tyler and the halftime events team. “Organizing the quiz night is a real team effort,” said Chrissie Barlow, President of Home-Start Winchester Events. “We are very grateful to these volunteers who worked hard behind the scenes to prepare supper and clean up afterwards. All the money we raise will go to support families in Winchester and surrounding areas who are struggling to cope and we have IVC Cars to thank for their continued sponsorship of our events,” she said.
