Thank you so much for supporting the 2018 Farleigh Quiz! This year we managed to raise over £4000 to fund the vital services we provide to people affected by life-limiting illness and bereavement.

Twenty one years ago we created our first Farleigh Quiz and since then we have had two aims. Firstly, to create a quiz that will challenge and entertain you and secondly to raise much needed cash for our wonderful Farleigh Hospice.

We really appreciate all the kind comments, letters and donations. It is great to get sheets returned from all over the country and this year we had a correct entry from Jersey. The Quiz helps put Farleigh “on the map”. Many thanks to our two sponsors, Chelmsford 41 Club and Hill & Abbott.

800 quizzes were sent in, with only 25 completely correct.

A big thank you to Chris Hibbitt and Jackie Thomson for creating the quiz.

There were several of the 75 questions that proved difficult. The main one was Clue 24. Christmas Bush with wine! Several of you put Mistletoe, probably due to the link with Cliff Richard. However the correct answer was Hollyhock.

Congratulations to the winners.
