On the evening of Tuesday 23rd October 2018 sixteen teams participated in six rounds of ten questions at Wistaston Memorial Hall's Annual Quiz for the Fred Lorimer trophy.
The quiz setters were Peter & Christina Wainwright who had organised their sixth quiz at the Hall on Church Lane in Wistaston.
The raffle was organised by Glenys White, Jonathan White and Meurig Jones for prizes which were all kindly donated. The raffle made £90.50.
The half-time refreshments were provided by Audrey & John Astbury, Eileen Bamber, Diane Edge-Robinson and Helen Heath.
There was also an information stall, staffed by George Edge-Robinson, for advice about the numerous group’s and societies that use Wistaston Memorial Hall throughout the year.
The winning team was ‘The Hall Stars’ (John Lomax, Jennifer & Vince Vyse, John White) with 52 points. ‘Pumpkins’ and ‘Scandalous’ were joint-second with 51 points apiece.
The Fred Lorimer trophy was presented to the winning team - ‘The Hall Stars’ - by Peter & Christina Wainwright, quizmasters.
