Following on from a fantastic evening at the Woolpack in March, we have decided to revisit the Quiz Night formula in November. Lance and Dee, the landlords, have been very helpful and will as usual put on a great show for us on Tuesday 15th November, when we hope to fill the pub once again.
Earlier this year, we had to disappoint several teams who applied too late, and I must remind you that the pub can only accommodate around 100 people for a quiz. That means that the maximum number of teams must be seventeen, and several have already signed up since last week’s mention in the newsletter. It will be first come, first served.
The format will be the same as last time, with 4-6 people in a team at £5 per person to be paid on the evening for the quiz and for a snack of nachos, cheese and chilli. You should get there from 7pm for a start at 8pm. Of course you could go early, or straight from work, and have a meal at the pub beforehand with your friends. The food at the Woolpack is particularly good. There will of course be a raffle with great prizes and all proceeds will once again go to St Peter and St James Hospice.
We are all hoping that the hospice team will give us all a chance to beat them this time, so that they don’t run off with all the prizes again! If you wish to take a spot for a great evening of fun and socialising, then get a team together from your company and send me an email as soon as possible saying you wish to take part.
See you there!
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
