Who wrote The Story of Art? What was the name of the pub (now closed) at Holystone? Who is Harden Quarry’s most famous customer?

These and 47 other questions were posed at Coquetdale U3A’s annual quiz, University (of the Third Age) Challenge, on Monday, January 23, at the Jubilee Institute, Rothbury.

The quizmaster was Ian Webb. The questions were a mix of general knowledge and on subjects relevant to the various Coquetdale U3A interest groups.

Following the quiz, the Food and Drink Group provided an excellent buffet of canapes and cake. It was a very enjoyable and challenging morning, followed by food for thought.

The next Coquetdale open meeting will be on February 20, when the Art Appreciation Group will give a presentation.

Non-members of the U3A are most welcome to attend for a £2 donation. All open meetings are at 10.30am, in the Jubilee Institute.

The answers to the quiz questions mentioned are EL Gombrich, The Salmon Inn and HM The Queen.
