The event was attended by some 85 quizzers and £1,108 was raised to be shared equally between Arthritis Research UK and British Lung Foundation. Both these charities support research in the UK into these distressing chronic diseases.

The winning team Simon’s Angels were only one point ahead of Wendy’s House.

Spokesman John Lambert said: “Winners of the wooden spoon (Grumpy Old G***) received a bumper book of quiz questions and answers so better luck to them next year. There were no losers as all enjoyed the evening.”
