On Tuesday 22nd October 2013 evening fourteen teams of four people participated in six rounds of ten questions at Wistaston Hall's Annual Quiz for the Fred Lorimer trophy.
The quizmasters were Peter & Christina Wainwright who had organised their first quiz at the Hall. In the past Geoff & Sheila Armitage had organised the quiz for over twenty years.
The raffle was organised by Glenys White and Bill Heath for prizes which were all kindly donated. The raffle made £90.
The half-time refreshments were organised by Audrey Astbury, Eileen Bamber, Kathleen Conroy, Helen Heath and John Astbury.
The winning team was called 'Four in a Corner' which comprised Christopher White, Andrea Ollerhead, Peter Jones and Juliet Gordon. They tied with 'The Hall Stars' with 39 out of 60 points. In the tiebreak the 'Four in a Corner' team were victorious by 2-1.
The Fred Lorimer trophy was presented to the winning team by John Cooke, President of the Hall's management committee.
The Dingbats quiz was won by a team called 'Joyce's Choice'.
Event organiser John White said, "We had another enjoyable and successful community event, which raised £160 for Hall funds. We thank everybody who supported this annual event for the Fred Lorimer trophy".
