County Quiz Final

Friday night 5th April at Comberbach WI  saw 20 teams competing for the first and second place trophies in the County Quiz Final.  Federation chair, Jean Harding read out the questions and she was assisted by Federation Hon Treasurer, Ann Daughtrey, and Veronica Gough Chair of the Sports and Leisure Committee along with Ann Clemett who marked the papers.  Judith Kennedy welcomed members and organised the raffle.  The quiz was pitched just right, harder than the heats but challenging enough.  Members of Comberbach WI welcomed everyone and provided refreshments after the 4th round when scores were close.   After the 8th round scores were totted up and there was a clear winner, congratulations to Helsby Hillside WI.   Joint second place went to Wallasey WI and Croft WI.   Each will hold the trophy for 6 months.  Seventeen other teams were congratulated on reaching the final.  Thanks go to the Sports and Leisure committee for organising the event – no mean feat – and for the support of  those throughout the County who read the questions and marked the papers and allowed this final to be brought to a close.  The  challenge now is for  members to brush on general knowledge and aim to win the trophy in Cheshire Federation’s centenary year, 2020!
