Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Clubs Round-up -

Denise, Bar­bara, Jim and An­thony make up which TV fam­ily? This year’s Ken­tish Ex­press Big Quiz went all the way down to the wire with the above ques­tion needed as a sud­den death tie-breaker. The Bonny Cra­vat team, from Wood­church, cor­rectly an­swered The Royle Fam­ily to re­tain the crown they won last year, pip­ping ri­vals Uni­corn, from Can­ter­bury. Both teams scored 71 out of a pos­si­ble 80. Forty-three teams took part in the event, which raised £4,190 – down on last year, but a very good re­sult con­sid­er­ing the eco­nomic down­turn. Com­peti­tors re­ceived a free glass of wine cour­tesy of Thresh­ers of Hythe and Gallo vine­yards, and Deben­hams pro­vided a cos­met­ics goodie bag and dis­count voucher for all the women. Kevin How­ell, of Thresh­ers, and Clare Sykes, of Deben­hams, pre­sented the win­ners’ tro­phy to the Bonny Cra­vat. A bot­tle of cham­pagne, do­nated by Thresh­ers, went to Anita Bate­son, of Char­ing, for the best sub­mit­ted ques­tion in the Read­ers’ Round. She asked: If some­thing is de­scribed as urce­o­late, what does it look like? An­swer: It is shaped like an urn or pitcher. The star prize in the raf­fle, a £500 ham­per of cos­met­ics do­nated by Ash­ford’s Deben­hams, was won by Kingsnorth pri­mary school teacher Stephanie Pryke, 29, of Ash­ford. The small army of vol­un­teers who helped en­sure the evening was a suc­cess were thanked by quiz mas­ter Si­mon Dolby. They in­cluded the staff anda man­age­ment of Folkesto one Cen­tre and its Friends or rgan­i­sa­tion, who set up the hall and pro­vid­edp food.
