HARRAND QUIZ - THOMPSON REMAIN CHAMPIONS
The Harrand quiz is held usually in November, between the four villages of Caston, Griston, Thompson and Stow Bedon with Breckles. The quiz has been held annually since 1982 in memory of Mr Jim Harrand who was a former Chairman of Caston Village Hall, Chairman of Caston Parish Council and a Church Warden as well as having been Deputy Head Master of Watton Secondary Modern School (now Watton High School).
The 2012 Harrand Quiz was held in Caston Village Hall on Friday 23rd November when, yet again, Thompson ran out winners. They were six points ahead of their nearest rivals,Caston and Griston, who tied in second place. Thompson have now won the Harrand shield for the last seven years in succession. The contest was fought out over eight rounds and questions covered a wide range of topics from Geography to Gardening and History to Sport. The spectator team also performed well. The quizmaster was David Blincow and the scorer was Alan Porter.
