Good food and quizzing came together for a highly successful Parish event which aimed to provide sustenance for both mind and body. The Pie, Peas, Pudding and Quiz evening took place in Kettlewell Village Hall on Saturday, February 10, and while intended mainly as an outreach event it also succeeded in raising £508.50 for Parish funds. Our thanks and congratulations go to everyone involved in this fun social event.
