Let’s get Quizzical

29th April 2020

A while back, before socially isolating became what we would now call normal, we here at Community Solutions were planning on having a quiz night.

Even though we can’t have a physical one at this time, we still wanted to give you all a quiz to help keep you busy and entertained for a short while. You can download the questions below by clicking on this link: https://bit.ly/3bMPKET

When you have finished email your answers to [email protected] to be in with a chance of winning a free Tea and Cake (or coffee) when we reopen Mr Gattys Tea Rooms!

All entries will go into a prize draw, with a winner selected at random. Winners announced Wednesday 12th May.

We hope you’re ready to get your brain going as this is going to be a tricky one. No cheating allowed 😉
