Cost £1.00 Closing Date December 31st 2014
Available from dottysmith@hotmail.com or from 111A Westgate, Belton,DN9 1PY with coin or cheque payable to St Oswald's Church PCC and a SAE

Thanks to those who supported my last quiz. Winner was a lady from Buckinghamshire and runner up from Derbyshire. £91 raised. I have sent the new quiz to all who requested it via e-mail. If yours hasn't arrived do contact me as I have at least one address which was not clear!

If you sent a cheque for my 'What is your Name Quiz' in July, you may wonder why your cheque has not been cashed - briefly, the Bank lost the cheques but eventually admitted liability. So the PCC received its money and you have gained a pound! Thank you for your support. Dorothy

from koala13, thank you
