We held a very successful Quiz evening recently in Sewards End Village Hall and raised nearly
£1300 towards the running costs of our Playbus. Special thanks to everyone concerned especially Margaret Shaw and Catherine
Fenn Smith our very able Quiz masters plus our fund raising committee who provided an excellent Chilli Con Carne using meat
donated by Burtons Butchers, Saffron Walden. We would also like to give special thanks to Saffron Diamonds without whose
help, we could not have run such an excellent event. We are very grateful to the many local businesses in Saffron
Walden who donated raffle prizes.
