The London Underground summer quiz results

The WLHG Underground quiz, which raised funds for the History group, was won by Marcia Pryke of Kesgrave, Ipswich.  She correctly answered all fifty questions and was "drawn from a hat", there being eight other all-correct entries, including Jenny Wilkinson and Juliet Pierce.

A Christmas quiz will be on sale for £2 at St Mary's Xmas Tree Festival.  This will be based around "Children's TV programmes" and once again there will be fifty cryptic clues to solve to identify those old (and not so old) favourites.
