“Call My Bluff” Wine Quiz

The Bernard Hall, Cuddington

Saturday 25th November  7.30 pm for 8 pm

This year’s fundraiser for the upkeep and maintenance of the Playing Fields and the Clubhouse takes the form of a hilarious wine quiz in the style of “Call My Bluff”.  A centre-stage panel of bluffers will talk you through each wine and, after tasting, you need to guess which panellist was telling the truth.

Can you tell which of our panellists are bluffing and correctly identify the wine?  There will be eight wines to taste, so the quiz will no doubt become harder as the evening wears on!  Why not get a table together and enjoy the fun?

Tables of up to eight people, at £12.50 per head including eight wines with nibbles and a cheese platter on the table.

For more details contact Charles Sanderson on 291626 or email charles.sanderson7@gmail.com

Best Kept Village Award Presentation

Following Cuddington’s success in this year’s Best Kept Village Competition, Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher presented the Morris Cup and Sword of Excellence to Ken Birkby, Chairman of Cuddington Parish Council, this afternoon.  He read out some of the complimentary comments from the judges and praised the village for our efforts.  He singled out the condition of the Best Kept Village sign, the defibrillator and the lack of litter in the village as particularly worthy of mention.  Sir Henry said that Cuddington has won both the Morris Cup and the Sword of Excellence more times than any other village.

Before the presentation the Chairman of the competition, Richard Pushman, paid tribute to the late Jim Hayward, saying that Jim had been instrumental in supporting the competition over many years and was a tremendous local champion.  He said that Cuddington has set the standard of what a best-kept village should look like.

Chearsley were kind enough to present us with a splendid celebratory cake for the occasion, created by Alex Brown.  Next year Chearsley will be entering the Best Kept Village Competition for the first time.  As this year's winners, Cuddington will be barred from entering next year, and so we wish our neighbours every success!
