Probus club ladies enjoy lively meeting with fun music quiz

Members of Cannock and District Ladies Probus Club, were treated to a ‘fun’ afternoon where, despite the speaker being unavailable due to voting commitments, a music quiz was organised by Jenny Dunn.

A long-standing member, Jenny is also involved with a local widows and luncheon club so, this was tried and tested on other groups she runs. Questions included singers, song titles, films and shows – all familiar as she deftly played CDs reminding us of music, as names escaped many of the members. Bonus points were awarded for those who sung along to the music then, those who got up to dance to tunes such as - Is This the Way to Amarillo by Tony Christie.

Members clapped and danced to the music to gain points but each question was interspersed with giggles, as many made wild guesses when names evaded the memory for shows, artists and the years that they were hit songs. The valued prizes were packets of biscuits, causing more fun as the winners were controversially decided on bonus points, as to who had been involved with the sing-a-longs.

This hilarity followed an excellent meal at the Chase Golf and Country Club of Gammon with chunky chips and peas, along with vegetarian and fish options; followed by desert of fresh fruit, brownie and chocolate ice cream or a selection of ice creams.

The Chairman's Raffle and Pauls Cheer, two free raffles, were each won by ‘birthday girls’ so, the afternoon of fun concluded with smiles all round.
