On Monday 3rd December STAR Group will be holding a Christmas Quiz at 2.00pm in the Methodist Church.
You can play as either an individual or as a team but the teams must be limited to no more than three people in a team in order to restrict the advantage gained over those playing as an individual.

The questions will be a mixture of Scientific/Technology based but with a Christmas twist and prizes will be given at the end of the session.

This session will be split into two halves. The first part will be the Questions. Then we will break for tea/coffee and Christmas bites. Then the second half of the session will reveal the answers and prize giving.  Full details on STAR Group webpage.  Any member of Keyworth & District U3A is welcome to come along.  Chris Mason
