Quiz night success!!

24 people crowded into a back room of the White Hart Inn in Buckingham last night to take part in Labour Party Quiz Night.

A very good time was had by all! The Maids of Moreton were worthy winners with Red Oktober coming a close second.

The raffle went down a storm: we sold over 300 tickets. The orchestra tickets, prosecco, whisky and chocolate prizes were all given out.

We raised over £140 to be added to our campaign chest for next year's national and local elections. The plan is hold at least one more quiz night in the new year. Please watch this space!

Thanks go to Quiz setter Lucy Turner who put together most of the questions which included how many times Nessie has been sighted! (I just did one round on Buckingham & Brackley by numbers) Thanks also to Wendy Turner who coordinated the raffle and the logistics with the pub.

Many thanks to Marian Livingstone and the Milton Keynes City Orchestra for the tickets. Thanks to both Robin Stuchbury and David Saunders who donated some of the other prizes. And a big thanks to the pub who gave us the space and support on the evening. And thanks to everyone else who donated prizes and came along to support.

It was great fun!!
