A fundraising quiz, organised by one of the many teams in Crewkerne Relay For Life, is all about past events and significant dates in history. The team behind the general knowledge quiz is Your Pace Or Mine, consisting of Linda Callow and a group of friends. Quiz sheets are available from James Hardware shop in Crewkerne at £1 per form. Entrants are invited to work out from the date and the initials, the name of the historic event. An example is given at the top of the form, to help understand how the clues lead to the answers.
1066 – TBOH, refers to The Battle Of Hastings. A typo error has been discovered since the entry forms were issued, so for those having a go, please note that question (7) 1869 EOACW, should read 1865 EOACW. All correct entries will be put into a draw and one lucky winner will receive £10. Completed entry forms should be handed in by June 10th. They can be returned to James Hardware, the Nags Head tavern at Thornfalcon or to a team member of ‘Your Pace Or Mine’.
Linda’s relay for life team is also organising a themed disco, to be held at the Nags Head in Thornfalcon on Saturday June 17th from 7.30 pm until midnight. The theme for the disco is the popular 1978 American film Grease. Linda said: “Get your Pink Ladies, T-birds, Danny, Sandy etc costumes ready, to help us raise money for a fantastic charity, while having fun dancing the night away.” Tickets to the ‘Grease’ themed disco are available from the Nags Head and the Winchester Arms at Trull at £5 each. Organisers are trying to arrange transport to and from Crewkerne to the disco. All proceeds are in support of Relay for Life Crewkerne 2017 in aid of Cancer Research UK.
