Quiz gives church funds a boost

THE annual quiz evening, organised by members of St Leonard’s Church in South Cockerington, was held in Grimoldby Village Hall and raised £500 for the church.

The quiz master The Rev Chris Turner kept the 72 participants not only puzzling and thinking but entertained as well. The ladies from St Leonard’s Church provided a buffet supper and contestants were plied with punch all evening.

The highest scoring team, for the second year running, with 80 points, was Miscellany winning Thornton’s Chocolates and wine. The booby prize went to The Optimists.

East Lindsey District Council has awarded £8,000 to St Leonard’s Church for the community project of installing toilets and a kitchenette.
