Saturday evening saw around sixty Manor Park and Hempstead Fields Residents’ Association members and friends enjoying themselves in the Luxford Centre at the Association’s first Quiz Night.
Two guest teams from Church Coombe Community Association were also present, as was a team from the charity Demelza Hospice Care for Children. A raffle during the evening raised over £100 for the charity.
The Association was lucky enough to have DJ Jerry Miller, from Uckfield FM, as the quizmaster. He had devised an entertaining quiz with a seasonal flavour, which included a round where the teams were asked to identify Christmassy ‘whiffs’ from test tubes. These included the smell of frankincense, mince pies and a smoky fire. Jerry’s wife and daughter, both suitably dressed in Christmas attire, assisted him throughout the evening.
