The 8TH Annual Quiz run by Chorleywood Parish Council was held at Chorleywood Memorial Hall raising money for voluntary, support or charitable organisations. This year around £8000 was shared between 21 groups from Friends of Carpenters Wood and CCYFC to Russell School PTA, Scouts and LitFest with Chorleywood Amateur Dramatics Society receiving £500 (drawn by lot) and the other twenty around £375 each. Viv Bartlett acted as quizmaster, the Parish Council team were in charge of the questions and acted as scorers and Diana Whitney, Lesley Edwards and Debbie Edwards prepared supper. The CCYFC table won with each team member receiving a banana! 49 promises were auctioned beforehand and 39 on the night by Martin Clarkson ( raising over £4,500 – over £200 per table) ranging from a white knuckle Aerobatic Flight and a Spa Day to 72 pints of Tring beer, tea with David Gauke MP at the House of Commons, personal chef Philip Williams for the evening ( sold twice raising £600+), a long weekend in Cornwall to meals at local restaurants and a stimulating challenge for a team of 5 to escape from an Escape Room within a 60 minute time limit! The Council will hold its 9th Quiz Night & Auction next year on Saturday 17 November 2018.
