We took part in a fund raising event for our local church this evening.
At half time most of us formed a circle round the room, put a pound in a couple of boxes, and passed the boxes round while music played. When the music stopped the people holding the boxes sat down, and the music restarted. Eventually there were just two people left - the two boxes had been combined - and Jan was one of the two. People, not boxes. (Are you following this?)
Oh - I managed to be on the winning team in the actual quiz (yes, somehow Jan and I ended up on different tables) so I came away with a bottle of wine. Jan's winnings covered the cost of our tickets and the wine "replaces" the beer I took to drink, so we've done all right, really!

Churnet - As planned, Brother Nº 3 and Wife met us at the Holly Bush Inn for a day's excitement. As hoped, the overnight rain died away at more or less the same time...
