General Knowledge Quiz

We have a new quiz for April from Julie Clarke (number 61) which has been loaded to the website as well as the answers to the February quiz. Our quiz page lists all the quizzes that have been set previously.

New Treasurer

Thank you to the members who responded to our appeal for a new Treasurer. We are lucky to have a strong committee but without key posts being filled we would not be able to continue.

We are pleased to announce that the Trustees have co-opted Keith Saywell to the committee. Keith will work alongside Richard through to September.

Members’ Morning and EGM

Many thanks to those members who are able to make a donation towards refreshments at our Member Mornings.

      4. I was wondering why the frisbee kept getting bigger and bigger, but then it hit me.
      5. I heard there were a bunch of break-ins over at the car park. That is wrong on so many levels.
      6. Don’t you hate it when someone answers their own questions? I I do.
      7. I know they say that money talks, but all mine says is ‘Goodbye.’
      8. The problem with kleptomaniacs is that they always take things literally.
      9. I can’t believe I got fired from the calendar factory. All I did was take a day off.

      11. My wife just found out I replaced our bed with a trampoline. She hit the ceiling!
