Past Events

Easter Quiz

Thank-you to everyone that supported our ‘Easter themed’ quiz, at Little Stoke Cricket Club, on Friday 22nd March 2024.  The quiz consisted of 7 rounds, which were as follows: Picture (Obsolete Sweets), Spring, Easter Facts, Easter Flowers, Music (Easter related), Easter Food & Treats and a Lucky Dip.

Easter Quiz - Friday 22nd March

Ten teams competed for the first prize, (an Easter hamper, including 3 bottles of wine and other goodies), this was won by the ‘Agatha Quiz Team’.  Second and third prizes were awarded to ‘Bakewell Friends’ and ‘Al's Pals’, who were each just a few points behind the winning team (with only one point separating them).

Many thanks for your support.  This was our most successful quiz to date, which raised a magnificent £235 for ALRA funds.

If you weren't able to join us for the quiz, then you may like to have a go at the picture round: Obsolete Sweets.

Valentine's Disco

Thanks to those of you that were able to come along and support this event...

Valentines' Disco - Friday 9th March

We opted for 9th February 2023, as it coincided with the half term break, but unfortunately, we were only able to negotiate a 7.30pm start, which probably didn't suit families with young children.  Plus, we had a number of last minute cancellations, due to stomach bugs!  Because of the low numbers, we decided to not charge for this event.

PS: A handful of regular cricket club members requested a few songs (that were not exactly romantic), but they seemed to enjoy themselves. 🙂

Christmas Quiz

Thank-you to everyone that supported our Christmas quiz, at Little Stoke Cricket Club, on Friday 8th December 2023.  The quiz consisted of 7 rounds, which were as follows: Picture (Films), Food, Drink, Around the World, Music (Pop Songs), Traditions and a Lucky Dip.

Christmas Quiz - 8th December

Six teams entered this fun competition, to win the Christmas hamper (including 3 bottles of wine and other goodies), that was shared by the winning team.  The second place prize went to a tie breaker, when both teams finished just 4 points behind the winners.

Thanks once again to Little Stoke Cricket Club, for letting us use their facilities and to the bar staff for selecting the prize winner for the ‘Best Christmas Jumper’.  A good time was had by all, and we raised another £138 to boost ALRA funds, for the benefit of the community.

If you weren't able to join us, you may like to have a go at the picture round: Christmas films.

Halloween Disco

This event, held on Friday 27th October 2023, was enjoyed by all those that attended, and raised a fantastic £225 for the Aston Lodge Defibrillator fund.

Halloween Disco - Friday 27th October

There was a fantastic turnout for the Halloween Disco on Friday.  A big thank you to everyone who attended, and for all the brilliant Halloween costumes ...both children and parents entered into the ‘spirit’ of it, with a selection of skeletons, witches, wizards, ghosts, ghouls, monsters of various kinds, and even a ghostbuster!  Every penny raised from ticket sales has been donated to the Aston Lodge Defibrillator fund.  A big thank you also to Ed and Nigel, for donating their disco services, and to Little Stoke Cricket Club for letting us use their club.  It was a great night!

Valentines Quiz

Our Valentine's quiz was held at Little Stoke Cricket Club, on Friday (10th February). It was an enjoyable evening, well attended, and raised over £200 for ALRA funds.  Thanks to Little Stoke Cricket Club, for allowing us to use their facilities and contributing prizes for the winning two teams, and thanks to everyone else that helped to make this event such a success.  Here's a link to our Valentine themed sudoku.
