Hythe & Waterside Rotary


Grand New Year Quiz

 

First Prize £30 Second £20 Third £10

 

As in previous years the Quiz is presented as an opportunity for you to donate to Rotary’s own charity, The Rotary Foundation. The aims of Foundation are to support projects worldwide (including the UK), Basic literacy and Education, Community Economic development, Disease Prevention, and treatment. Maternal and child health, peacebuilding and conflict prevention and water, sanitation, and hygiene.

 

The quiz in its current form was the brainchild of Tony Mizen, consisting of formal crossword clues. In its new format I have retained some questions of this nature but introduced other methods of digging up the answers. Think outside the box and use your browser. I have made some questions straightforward but in other you will need to follow my tortured neurones. Do not be put off submitting an incomplete answer sheet.
