The Hammond Property Services Annual Quiz...

The 2016 Hammond Property Services Quiz....it's Now Available....

The easiest ? (!) Quiz you will ever do with plenty of Prizes!

"COLOURS QUIZ for 2016"

I thought that you may wish to enter our latest ‘brain buster’ to tax those grey matter cells!!! As with our previous Quizzes, all of the answers that you need are on the last page!, ………..you just need to be able to work out how the ‘clever’ clues can give you the answer of something 'colour related'.

The Quiz is set to last throughout the winter months and over the Christmas period. It will be ideal to bring out with family and friends once all the Turkey has been eaten and the conversation is ‘running dry’! Many entries received last year were from those who took the Quiz with them on holidays over Half Term and New Year! - hence numerous entries from all over England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Isle of Man, Eire, 5 from the States, France, Germany, The USA, New Zealand, Turkey, Cyprus & Patagonia!!!!

If you wish to enter the Quiz, simply visit our website, click on the Quiz Link and then print off the 4 pdf pages you will need (which include the answers - just not in the correct order!)

http://www.hammondpropertyservices.com/quiz

If you require an original copy, email me at the address below – or you can print off more copies from our Website. All entries on sheets printed from our Website are valid......…..and it is still free to enter!
__________________________________

However, (if you have really enjoyed it!) those wishing to make donation of £1 or £2 to the Nottingham Branch of ChildLine may do so using the small box on the last page of the Quiz.

Although ChildLine is a national organisation, each branch operates on a regional basis, so any local support they receive is invaluable. The ChildLine counselling centre in Nottingham provides a unique and confidential service to scared and vulnerable callers in East Midlands and East Anglia, making it a truly local charity to support.
To date ChildLine has helped nearly two million children, saved children’s lives, brought abusers to justice and found refuge for children in danger on the streets.

However, ChildLine has never had the resources to answer every call. At present approx. 4,500 children a day call for help, but due to a lack of funds it's only possible to answer around 2,500 of these, meaning that 2000 children a day continue to suffer alone in silence.

*** ALL ENTRANTS RAISED £1967 LAST YEAR ***

_____________________________________________

just to give you a helping hand with the Quiz. ……

Roman Numerals: 1 = I 5 = V 10 = X 50 = L
100 = C 500 = D
1000 = M

AND... a final helping hand.....

Try and find a list of Chemical Symbols / Abbreviations!

Best of luck with your entry – I hope it keeps you busy AND entertained!

Kind regards

Jonathan
