Show Success

There was a good turnout last week for the three performances of this year’s DVC production, Aladdin. The cast and production crew had a great time and the audiences appeared to enjoy themselves as well.

Two reviews of the performance plus details of the cast etc now appear on a This Year’s DVC Page.

A number of other pictures, taken by Lisa North, can be seen on Flickr.

Oil Change

DABOS, the local oil bulk-buying syndicate has been reorganised.

Katrina Cattermole who has been running the scheme since its founder Julie Oxley stepped down, has now handed over to Robert Banbury from Alburgh. Further details are in the services section.

Question Time

This year’s Village Quiz, held on February 4th, was, appropriately enough, a great example of the Olympic spirit in action. Taking part was far more important than winning.

This was demonstrated by the two teams that contested last place and achieved the same score, 58 points. A tie-breaker “What is the length of the Nile?” was needed to separate them and decide who took home the coveted wooden spoons. “Norfolk and Chance” who were closest to the correct answer — 4,132 miles! — achieved this notable distinction.

Ten teams took part and enjoyed a great evening with an excellent meal at half time. The winners were “Poppy’s People” aka “The Hanners” with 83 points but it was a close run thing with 5 points covering the top three places.

Thanks must go to all those who contributed to the event but particularly to the question-mistresses, Denise and Julie, and to Kath who did a great job organising the food.
