Curry and Quiz Night Success

Hello Everybody !

Well - the curry & quiz night held last night went down a storm.

We sold out with 80 people in attendance and Duncan & Jill, Sidmouth’s very own master chefs, rustled us up a splendid curry.

At the helm for the night was Dan Goddard ( ably supported by Alexa Baker ) who asked the brain teasers in a 5 round extravaganza. This was duly won by the ‘Jedwood & Vanilla Ice’ team whos only infringement on the night was an overlookable 7 team members instead of 6. But who’s counting !!

The winners took delivery of the recently resurrected Sid Vale Quiz shield & we fully expect to contest this handsome trophy again before the year is complete. More importantly the winners won a steak meal for 6 ( possibly 7 ! ) courtesy of Mark and Joanna Seward of ‘Sidmouth Hotels’. We would like to thank them personally for their generosity and strong showing in the quiz itself. Other sponsors included Martyn, Sarah & Julie Fisher of Hunters Moon Hotel and Roger and Tracey Aplin of the Sidford Post Office / Press. Many thanks again.

A special thankyou must go to Buffy Cavin who provided random obscure entertainment on the night plus Linda Coombs and Christina Morgan for raffle sales and book keeping. Pete Drewett was also on hand to sign copies of his new book and generously made a donation to our fund from their sales. More copies are available upon request.

And so to the business end of the project – the ‘take’. Our initial total was £740 but upon sober recalculation this has now been mysteriously boosted to £830 !!! A fabulous total I’m sure you’ll agree – and it’s just the start of our entertainment agenda ……

Please stay tuned for our next event and don’t forget – please donate !!!

Best regards
