As with previous Quiz nights there will be a Pie ‘n’ Pea supper (veggie option available) along with a raffle. All proceeds will be going to Mayfield & Ellastone First Responders and we will also be presenting a cheque to the First Responders from the 2016 Wootton Calendar sale. Tickets will remain priced at £5 per person and this will include entry to the quiz & supper. Tickets need to be ordered by Tuesday 3rd May and can be ordered by emailing Jacqui Kinch on jacqui.kinch@btconnect.com or phone 324811.

Would be great to see a good turnout so do mention it to family and friends.  Last November £380 was raised from the quiz night, which is fantastic.
