Charity pub quiz this Wednesday at the Royal Oak

The quiz night takes place at the Royal Oak on Wednesday

There’s another charity pub quiz at the Royal Oak on Charlton Lane this Wednesday, 15 December. Quizmaster PAUL BREEN explains more….

An impromptu pub quiz is taking place at The Royal Oak pub next Wednesday. This is an attempt to raise money for charity and to support an elderly lady whose small dog got attacked by a greyhound in Charlton Park. The quiz organisers are going to divide all funds 50-50 between a greyhound rescue charity and the injured dog’s veterinary bills.

As part of the fundraising venture Charlton Athletic have donated a jersey, signed by the current team, for the raffle that will take place on the quiz night.  A number of other raffle prizes will be available on the night. Tickets for this draw are available in The Royal Oak.

Everyone is welcome on a night that is expected to once again provide great entertainment. The quiz costs five pounds per player with a maximum of five players per team. Last time around, we raised over three hundred pounds for Maryon Park Community Garden and we hope for a similar turnout this time around.

The quiz takes place on Wednesday 15th December from 7.30pm onwards but patrons are asked to turn up as early as possible.

News in from Charlton & Blackheath Amateur Horticultural Society (CABAHS) about a family-friendly event at Charlton House this Sunday, 18th April.

Charlton House walled gardens will be open to the public for the first time in over a year. Please bring friends and family along. There is a free Easter trail for the children, with a chocolate prize. This is also the opportunity to see the new planting scheme at the Old Pond Garden, and admire the HUGE effort that the volunteers have made in the Long Borders too. We will have the plans and history on show. There will also be a small plant sales table.

The Horticultural Society’s Spring Show has been cancelled, but there will be some vase displays on show.  The Green Goddess pop-up pub will be at Charlton House on the same day (book in advance).

Also on Sunday will be the “Around the Corner Market” walking trail to craft makers’ houses around Charlton, organised by The Corner At 96. You can view the map of the trail with details of the participants here.
