Wistaston Memorial - The quiz in action

Sixteen teams battled it out over six rounds of ten questions at Wistaston Memorial Hall’s Annual Quiz, writes Jonathan White.

The teams were competing for the Fred Lorimer trophy, and quiz masters setters were Peter and Christina Wainwright.

And the winning team was ‘The Hall Stars’ – John Lomax, Jennifer and Vince Vyse, John White – with 52 points.

‘Pumpkins’ and ‘Scandalous’ were joint-second with 51 points each.

The Fred Lorimer trophy was presented to the winning team – ‘The Hall Stars’ – by Peter and Christina Wainwright.

Event organiser John White said: “We had another enjoyable and successful community event, which raised over £250 for Hall funds.

“We thank everybody who supported and contributed towards this annual event for the Fred Lorimer trophy.”
