Ringwood Community Centre Annual Quiz

Several members of the HGS Ringwood Group recently took part in the Ringwood Community Centre Annual Quiz.

The team over the 2 nights consisted of Paul Pinhorne, Mary Baldwin, Michael Jenkinson and George Hilbert. The team won their first 2 matches to go through to the final, but were unable to beat the Civil Service Retirement Association when it counted. The HGS Ringwood Group have reached the final on at least 5 occasions over the past 20 years but have been beaten each time.
