Around 90 Friends gathered in the Congress Suite to take part in a quiz set for them by the Rattonians’ own Mark and Melanie Adams.

Quizmasters – Mark and Melanie Adams

Admitting this was the first time they had devised a quiz, Mark and Melanie explained – to the consternation of many of the six-strong teams – their questions were to be mainly set around the theatre – and in true Rattonians’ tradition, musical theatre at that!

Fortunately for many of those gathered, only the top scoring teams were identified – there would probably have been a whole load of contestants for the lowest score booby prize  (if there had been one!)  – and it was little surprise that the  winning team had two members very closely associated with musical theatre during their professional lives – Gaye Vaughan and Jackie (Toye) Davies.   Well done to them.

The Winning Team

It was a somewhat bemused gathering that settled down to enjoy their tea of sandwiches and cake!

The raffle held that afternoon raised £116.
