The Mallets

The Mallets quiz team: L – R: Eve, Chris, Jane, Neil, David and Judith

This gallant team finished second in Friday, 26 April, night’s Fishbourne community Centre’s quiz night.

We had to fight some of the quiz-master’s answers, including: “The National Emblem of New Zealand – his answer Kiwi, the correct answer is Silver Fern“, and “What is the vegetable with the highest calorie content – his answer Avocado – this is classed as a fruit not a vegetable”. Incidentally the quiz-master was Kieran’s father.

It was a great fun evening, even when the fish and chips order for us arrived late and we started the quiz while still eating! We did well in the General Knowledge round and we played our “Joker” on the Food and Drink round … we didn’t do too well on the Disney round or the Chichester picture quiz round!

Perhaps …. for the next quiz we can put a second team of avid quizzers in the centre

Maintenance Day – Saturday 23 March 2019

Nineteen members turned out on a dull and chilly Saturday morning. jobs involved clearing out rubbish, cleaning and refurbishing the stores and huts. A highly trained group of painters (actually known as “Toshers” in the trade) applied a generous coat of dark green preservative to the outside of the hutting …. and to themselves!
