Quiz 2

We are very grateful to MAU3A’s own Quiz Queen, Susan Tomlinson, for allowing us to use this quiz of 120 questions. The subject of this quiz is “Kitchen Utensils & Requisites”. Even if you don’t know your trivet from your trivia, give it a try – in the present climate, with the prospect of many of us being confined to barracks, we all need things to occupy & amuse us.

Quiz 3


Back in the 1930’s my Father was an avid cyclist and loved to go on holiday with a few mates on their bicycles; this is one of his routes. A while ago I found an old map and several routes are marked out as to where they went,  I have a second route for you to follow after this one. Three small clues, there are no hotels or venues, it is a circular route and he lived in Derbyshire! In fact quite local to Matlock
