Annual WVRA Curry Supper Quiz
With the arrival of summer, March and the WVRA’s annual Curry Supper Quiz feels like another country, very far away. But it would be remiss not to thank everyone who made the event such a success; Shameem Mir who once again produced a veritable buffet fit for a king/queen/prince/princess, Neil Underwood, the inimitable quizmaster who tested everyone’s brains and retention of extraneous knowledge to just this side of breaking point and all the committee members and volunteers who ensured the food made it on to everyone’s plates, sold raffle tickets and received dish-pan hands at the end of the night for all the hard work. And a big nod to the local businesses who contributed the best selection of raffle prizes this side of the National Lottery: Orford Saloon, La Ruga, In Vino Veritas, Queen’s Arms, The Deli, Village Bakery, Froth & Rind, East London Sausage Co, The Village pub, E17 Village Market, Petals
in Bloom, Here on Earth, Sean Pines Photography, Debbie Bliss, Blomst, Daryl and Jess Ablecroft and Nisa Local. Thank you!
Of course, congratulations to the winning team – Mini Hollandaise – who celebrated with just the right amount of gloating.
The event raised over £1,200 for the WVRA and the event will take place again in March 2018, when all the losers will get a chance for sweet revenge.
