Friday Evening Quiz

A Friday Evening Quiz online (using Zoom), led and compiled by Iain; starting at 7pm. Please contact Iain (see Who’s Who page for contact details) if you are, or maybe, interested in taking part.
He will then send you the link to ‘click’ on the night so that you can join in.
Many people are ‘regulars’ and others join in when they can
How did it start? When Lockdown was imposed in 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 virus, several members decided that we could keep in touch by having a ‘meeting’ online.  Friday evening quiz was started by Iain and it has carried on since then on Fridays at 7pm.  The quiz is FUN and not ‘mastermind’!  And, each week, Iain sets a ‘task’ so that everyone can contribute on the night.
