As the afternoon progressed we had the quiz results as well as “Make me something from the balloons” competition for the second year running which was not an easy one to choose from as they were all very good. Congratulations to Angie for winning the balloon competition and to Lynn and John’s table for winning the quiz  from “Everything begins with “N”, “Taking the Chris” and the last quiz which was a real teaser – one question that caught them out the most was –  from which film was this saying  “Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads” Yes it was “Back To The Future” Would you have got that? More dancing followed – see playlist below, and then before we knew it was time to say goodbye.
