Village news

It’s in the bag

Reviving the days of the very popular travelling television quiz show here at the village, we featured Neville Parkinson as Selwyn Toogood and Pip Griffin as Tineke Bouchier.

During the show, each resident would be called onto the stage and asked three very easy questions related to the village.

If all three were answered correctly, sometimes with the help of the audience, the resident had the chance to play for “the chocolates or the bag?”.

By hokey this was a fantastic event. With 15 bags and only two “booby” prizes, only one resident chose the chocolates over the bag. The “what do you think Gisborne?” question was always met with “The bag! The bag!”.
