The Future of Quizzing


March came and it seemed that the world stood still. Everything stopped and we were all stuck at home. Gradually though, people found different ways of doing what was really important to them. In the Perry household, our Monday quiz has become as much a part of our week as church on a Sunday and having gradually improved our weekly ‘meeting’ with friends, we thought we might spread our wings and try for a full-blown fundraising quiz in aid of parish funds. Seventeen teams of up to 4 people joined us last Friday for an online battle.

The Quizzy Rascals lived up to their name and won by a single point. The feedback following the event was hugely positive and everyone seems keen to come back for more.

£200 was raised (someone thought it was so good they gave an added donation which by sheer chance rounded the total) and at the end of the event the clearing up took less than 5 minutes, which has to be an added bonus!

So the silver lining to lockdown is that the Worth Parish Virtual Quiz will remain on the Parish Calendar in the new normal – why not join us in September?
