Test your general knowledge while helping to improve a west Dorset village hall.

A fundraising quiz night is being held at Melplash Village Hall in aid of improvements to facilities at the hall.

Teams of up to four people are invited to compete for a non-cash prize and can bring drinks and a pudding for sharing.

A spokesperson for the village hall trust said: “Work on our new kitchen is underway. Our plan for a major rebuild of the hall with the support of the National Lottery has had a serious setback. The lottery has advised that it no longer gives major grants for village hall projects in rural areas. We are therefore exploring alternative sources of funding.

“In the meantime, we will maintain and improve the existing hall so that it can continue to provide a venue for all the activities that currently take place.”

The quiz will take place on Friday, September 27 from 7.30pm.
