2024 Annual Dinner
On Saturday evening the 3rd of February, twenty six members of the club attended this year's Annual Dinner at The Gallow, Fakenham.
Those present enjoyed a very pleasant meal and a most interesting Quiz.
The quiz ended in a dead heat for both first and third places which only a series of tie breaker questions resoved. Perhaps after last rear being too difficult we this time made it a bit too easy!
