On January 28th, more than 80 competitors [some of whom had been revising for at least 5 minutes!] filled Tacolneston Village Hall to boost the funds of Forncett Allotment Association, for a Chilli & Quiz evening. The 14 tables of 6 competitors per table were only too glad to sample the chilli, given that it was close to zero outside. Slow-Cookers full of simmering chilli (including a vegetarian option) were brought in by association members, while others cooked jacket potatoes by the score.
Clare Aldus ran a raffle during the evening, which had eleven prizes; John Wilde was the master of ceremonies, question compiler and question master, assisted by his wife, Margaret, the Chair of FALGA; our tame paparazzo [Su Leavesley] was recording the event with her camera.
Peter Hunter and his team (named 'Last Years Losers') managed 'the double' by taking the booby prize again......yes, another marrow, and 'The Newcomers' came out on top, each of the winners receiving a bottle of wine.
The thanks of the association go especially to all of those who contributed towards such a happy and memorable evening; from those who did the cooking; those who patronised the event and helped towards the fundraising, to those who tackled the mountain of washing up!
