All you Quiz-lovers, make a note of Thursday 27 July. The Circuit Methodist Women in Britain (MWiB) have arranged a light-hearted evening of brain-teasing questions devised by Paul Binney, our Quiz-Master.

The cost of the evening, in aid of World Mission, is £5.00, payable on the evening. Please let Margaret Snelling know by Sunday 16 July if you intend to come (01603 613724 or firstname.lastname@example.org). The Bignold School car park will be available.
