Well, this year’s quiz is complete, and we have winners – thanks for taking part, being good sports and for persevering with what were, on reflection, very tough questions!
As usual, the ones I thought were hard went quickly, the easy ones, not so much.
Next year, if there’s an appetite for another quiz – and I invite comment on that – I’ll endeavour to get it out earlier, when everyone is still on holiday. Sorry, this time the sheer weight of other stuff going on defeated me.

Lynn won part one, and wins a mini-keg of Backyard ale, as does Clive, who was astoundingly good in part two. Both of you put up a huge effort.
In addition, I’ll give both of you a book prize each: Lynn said she hadn’t got a copy of the Blue Shelfield Mayo book, and I have a spare: it’s yours. I’ll be in touch with Clive to see what he’d like.
I think also Denis Jones deserves a book for being so quick off the mark, and Jane Mansfield who clearly looked around her neighbourhood with open eyes.
I’ll be in touch with the winners by next weekend, so your prizes should be out in a week’s time.
Thanks to everyone for being up for it, and not taking things too seriously. I agonise over these quizzes and like to be fair – so if I’ve made any glaring errors or suchlike please do get in touch.
Again, thanks, it was great fun. Comment here with your thoughts or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
