Fish & Chip Quiz Night, organised by the Lyle Kirk Social Committee. The main event of the evening will be the Quiz - teams of 1, 2, 3, or how ever many friends you can muster will all be made welcome, and I'm sure the Quiz Master and their helpers will have a great prize for the winner and loser. If anything like our previous Quiz's we are looking forward to an entertaining evening.
Evening starts at 6.30pm and tickets are available from social committee members - a very reasonable £6 each, which includes your supper, with bread & butter and a cup of tea. Pre-orders of food required with order form at back of church. We look forward to seeing you and your family and friends.
