Quiz Night

It’s that time again - Saturday, 26th October Sandra will be holding a Quiz in Littlethorpe Village Hall starting at 7.30pm prompt.

Tickets cost £2.00 each but there’s no need to book – just turn up on the night. We do ask that you bring your own drinks and a contribution towards a communal supper. (We always end up with a fantastic spread).

There is a maximum of 6 to a team but we can always find a team for you to join if you come on your own. As well as a cup for the winners, there is also a wooden spoon to be won. Please can the previous winners (and losers) bring those back.

If you haven’t been before, I must point out that the emphasis is on FUN.

There will also be a raffle.

UPDATE - A packed village hall, with many new faces, enjoyed another fun quiz. Hallowe'en was in evidence including a pumpkin as one prize in the excellent raffle and, as always, there was a wonderful spread for supper. Kevin and Nicola Vollans were celebrating their 17th wedding anniversary but that didn't stop Kevin ending up in the naughty corner! 'Littlethorpe Parkers' were the winners of the wooden spoon and 'Payne in the Hartas', after being in last place earlier in the quiz, came out winners.

NOTE - Please could the winners of the wooden spoon at the last quiz return it to either Chris Winterburn or Rob Ankcorn.

Litter Pick

The next village litter pick will take place on Saturday 5th October meeting at 10a.m. in the village hall car park. Refreshments provided afterwards.

UPDATE - Chair of Littlethorpe Parish Council, Gerry Spoors, was looking decidedly glum when I arrived as he thought no-one was going to turn up but he needn't have worried as a band of helpers soon arrived. Christine Winterburn stayed behind to prepare tea, coffee and sausage sandwiches while everyone else was allocated to a different route. Thank you to everyone who turned out to help. The good news is that there was very little litter this time!

Bridge Drive

UPDATE - This is the fourth year that Kay Thorpe has organised this bridge drive in Littlethorpe Village Hall to raise money for St. Michael's Hospice. Kay and her band of ladies had produced a wonderful spread for the mid-afternoon interval and there was also a great raffle. Paul Warrington was also on hand to do the fetching and carrying. Kay was thrilled to have made a profit of £300 and would like to commend the 'kitchen staff' for their hard work.
