Good morning!

I see the sun has decided to join us this month. I even managed to spend some time in the garden! If you have your eye on a quiet afternoon in the garden, then we have just the quizzes and puzzles for you.

Check back to the April thread to see quiz and puzzle results updates, thanks from setters and how much money was raised!

NOTICE: Please remember it is vital that you add contact details ie email or postal address, the closing date, the cost, where the quiz funds will be going and the theme of the quiz, thanks.

If you have already added it to AB you can just post the link to the question.

Please could you post one quiz per answer to avoid confusion, thank you.
