ADHOC has held these Quizzes for several years now with all the profits going to support needy causes within the village.
If the tickets reserved for Oakley Ramblers have not been sold by Wednesday 10th April 2019 I will have to return them to ADHOC so they can be offered to other people wishing to attend.
