And the answer is...
The evening of Friday 30 September was a chance for those in and around Old Buckenham to see just what unusual facts they could remember. It was time for a quiz in the Village Hall and, although there were fewer entries than usual, the seven teams had an enjoyable time.
There were eight rounds of ten questions each, covering a wide range of subjects such as sport, nature, cooking, films, geography, medical maters and maritime facts. There was also a separate quiz to complete in any spare moments that involved identifying various sweets and chocolates from some devious clues.
This sweet quiz was eventually won by the ‘Oscars’ from Oaklands who had to win a tie break question against two other teams. The team taking away the trophy in the main quiz was the ‘Harling Bucks’ (two people from East Harling and two from Old Buckenham shown above) who were clear winners thanks to a judicious choice of when to play their’ joker’ to double their points in that particular round.
With the help of a well-stocked raffle table, the event helped raise some funds for the Village hall as well as providing an entertaining evening.
