Charlton Athletic shirt on offer at Royal Oak charity quiz night

Royal Oak pub in Charlton Lane
Quiz nights are returning to the Royal Oak

The Royal Oak on Charlton Lane is staging another charity pub quiz this Tuesday, to raise money for the Maryon Park Community Garden. Quizmaster PAUL BREEN – who is also vice-chair of the garden – would like to invite you along…

The garden relies entirely on donations and volunteers. To help with fundraising Charlton Athletic have donated a signed first-team shirt from the 2021/2022 season which will be raffled on the night.

Maryon Park Community Garden has been in existence since 2012 when locals took advantage of a Capital Growth grant to rejuvenate an overgrown area of the park. As a taster, here’s a question: Which infamous politician was instrumental in giving out these grants? (Clue: many people might now like said politician to go on gardening leave.)

Unfortunately the answers to this question are only available to those who turn up on the quiz night. Hopefully then the community garden will get the benefit of a decent crowd on the night and be able to continue their good work in the local area.

The quiz starts at 7.30pm and should last about two hours. Food is also available in The Royal Oak beforehand.

Updated to get the day right – it’s on Tuesday!
