Weekly Update 5 July 2021

Lockdown Quiz

The answers to the latest quiz from Julie Clarke (number 65) have been uploaded to the website as well as the answers to music quiz number 64.  Our quiz page lists all the quizzes that have been set previously.

Julie has decided to take a very well deserved break, after 65 weeks of keeping us challenged and entertained.  On behalf of the committee and members we’d like to say a huge thank you to Julie and everyone else who has helped to keep up our spirits since the first lockdown.
