The latest news for you

As advertised the Heanor Rams annual Quiz night held at the Heanor Miners Welfare on the evening of 7th November was a big success and enjoyed by all who attended. The turn out was not as huge as the previous occasions yet it was, as expected, an enjoyable quiz for all those who made the effort to be tested by Graham Waterfall. Plenty of silence prevailed over many of the questions and many a cheer went up when the answers were given, as well as many comical remarks about some of the guessed answers. Ten teams of four scratched their heads and stirred the grey matter to delve into the memory box in an effort to be the winners. The questions ranged from pot luck to television, to films and books, and sport. The last questionnaire was asked to give the familiar names of prominent persons who have changed their birth name. Thirteen prizes were on offer for the raffle and credit and thanks go to Zoe Bellamy for asking various business’s to donate a prize. The proceeds from the whole evening go to Me&Dee a charity that gives help to children suffering ailments and assists their mums and dad to give them a holiday. The winners of the competition were a team called Firecrackers who amassed a total of 75 points, second was the Birthday boys with 72 points and third Bill and Ben Plant pot. The sum raised by the occasion was £165.00 and Mr Martin Plant gave a big thank you to all who donated and participated in the entertainment.
