COLYTON: White Hart team take pub quiz title from Dolphin

Friday, 17 January 2014

A QUIZ team from the White Hart Inn in Colyford came out on top of the annual Rotary Club pub quiz.
Twice a year, in March and October, the Rotary Club of Dawlish Water organises a pub quiz to raise funds for selected charities, with about 100 teams taking part from pubs across the British Isles and parts of Europe.
Prize money for the winning team is donated to their chosen charity, with a barrel of beer or crate of wine going to the largest team, and further cash prizes for second and third. The remaining funds, collected from entrance fees, is split between Rotary charities including ShelterBox and Polio Plus, usually totalling £3,000.
The Rotary Club of Seaton take part in the quiz each year and present a trophy to the winning team from their area. The winning team of the October quiz was from White Hart in Colyford, stealing the title from the Dolphin Hotel in Beer, which has won the trophy for the past six quizzes.
The presentation of the trophy was held at the White Hart last week. Boo Bradley collected the prize ob behalf of her team from quiz organiser Les Andrews, Rotary Club Presidents Jean Davis and quiz master Jean Riordan.
The next Rotary Club Pub Quiz will be held in march 2014 in pubs around the Seaton area. All those wishing to take part should contact les Andrews on 01297 21377.
