East Barkwith three way gardeners quiz

IT must have been the closest result ever recorded since the Three Way Quiz was introduced when teams from the Barkwith and District Gardeners Association, Woodhall Spa Gardeners and Market Rasen Gardeners met recently to battle it out in the annual friendly competition.

Market Rasen Gardeners were the hosts and the Woodhall Spa Gardeners team the eventual winners by just one point - scoring a total of 28 points with the Barkwith Gardeners and the Woodhall Spa Gardeners teams hot on their heels in joint second place with 27 points each.

The Woodhall Spa Captain received the silver salver to keep for the year. Cecelia Povey the Market Rasen chairman extended a very warm welcome to the visiting teams and their supporters and she acted as question master and

had set the challenging and testing questions which had all the teams members puzzling, equally. All followed a gardening theme and there were both individual and team questions for added interest. The hosts had prepared a lovely buffet supper to end the evening as the respective club members were able to socialise informally together and there was a very good raffle too. Sheila Minns was captain of the Barkwith Gardeners team with Kate Wright and Laura Pearce team members.
