A QUIZ was held in Powick Parish hall to rasie money for aid of Powick Playing Field association on Saturday.

Twelve teams of four took part answering questions on general knowledge, history, geography, TV/film, sport and food and drink.

A music round had been set by Tony Seldon, who was also the question-master.

A picture round consisted of unusual views of features in Powick: the questions were set by members of the committee.

Teams represented groups within the parish including badminton, playing field, WI, panto group, and groups from Malvern and Lower Wick.

The winners were Expected to Lose (Julia Sandy, Elaine and Nick Mather and Maureen Charles) each winning a bottle of wine; second was Death by Quiz, led by Delyth Coles; and third was Yaffles, led by Margaret Allen.

Special thanks go to members of the committee who provided chilli and baked potatoes for the interval; to John Hubbard on raffle, for Nick Sandy as scorer, Stephan Flubacher and Jim Allsopp on bar, Ros Mason and Nick Hill for kitchen duties.

  • Plough Sunday was marked with a Blessing of Robert Floyd’s plough attached to his 1959 Fordson tractor.

The main service, led by Meg Allsopp, took place in church and prayers were led by Kris Quatermass.

  • Open the Book has now restarted in the two village schools bringing Bible stories to the children at each Thursday assembly, where the children enjoy dressing up.
  • Rehearsals are well under way for Powick Players’ next pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk.

It will be performed in Powick parish Hall during half term week in February from Tuesday, February 18 to Saturday, February 22.

  • The wet weather has taken its toll on Powick Ramblers but a few determined souls have braved the mud.

The next walk is on Thursday, January 23 meeting at the Plume of Feathers (GR763777) for a five-mile walk around Castlemorton Common, led by Ginnie and David Russell.

Wellies would be advisable!
