Thompson Village Team Triumphant for Third Year
The evening of Friday 14th November again saw the quiz team from the village of Thompson win the inter-village annual James Harrand Quiz challenge, this for the third time in succession. The quiz is held every year between teams from the adjacent villages of Thompson, Griston, Stow Bedon & Breckles and Caston. Thompson have won the shield for the last two years and this year they added to their tally coming easy winners with 72 points from a possible 100. Stow Bedon and Breckles came runners up with 62 points and Caston and Griston came third and fourth respectively.
