Patchway Twinning Association enters two teams for Inter - County Twinning Quiz Cup

On Friday the 20th November Patchway Twinning Association accepted the invitation from the Alveston Twinning Association to enter two teams for the inter-county Quiz Cup.

This was a fund raising event organised by Alveston, which enabled many of the associations around the area to come together for a social evening.

The evening was a complete success for all taking part although our teams came a lowly 9th and 10th out of the 19 teams taking part. The quiz questions were far reaching and it was a good job that we had a broad spectrum of knowledge within the teams.
