Golf Quiz Night
The NLPD golf quiz night was a big success, thanks to Brendan O' & his team of helpers, they raised over £600! We had a great venue at the Big Bog Brewery in Speke, Liverpool & we enjoyed a photo quiz round, then 4 rounds of quiz questions, Irish 'Sit Down Bingo', super raffle prizes and a prize for best team name, which went to Peter C's 'Couldn't be ar*ed!' team!
The evening was well presented by Bren and MC Richard C & everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable night.
Recently, we got together at the Formby Golf Centre to have a go at the 9 hole pitch & putt. WE had 2 groups of players and Brendan was the winner with the lowest score.
