…and the 2016 winner is

trophiesThe Errant Gnomes team triumphed again at this year’s District 105M MasterTeam Quiz held as usual at the Strawberry Bank Hotel & Restaurant in Meriden.


After establishing a slender lead early on, the team from Marston Green & District hung on to beat the Densa team from Solihull by the smallest of margins – a single point. Who knows what the result would have been had the 4th Densa team member arrived


During the evening Lion President Bob Thurtle of host club Knowle & Dorridge auctioned a free weekend hire of a Range Rover Evoke donated by Listers LandRover in Solihull, and a raffle was held to raise funds for ORBIS campaign Vision for Zambia. Knowle & Dorridge Lions had pre-empted the amount which would be raised and had donated £500 before the Government’s deadline to double up this to £1000.

Lion Bob also gave a cheque for £250 to Steve Worrell for his quiz-mastering skills, which was made out to his favourite charity Muscular Dystrophy

Thanks go to the new owners of Strawberry Bank who donated the room for the evening and filled rolls for the contestants who had built up an appetite
