Lions Quiz

As we may not be able to run our quiz in November, we are organising another one online. See link: https://www.southwell-lions.org/turn-the-corner-quiz.html Our question setters will again be wracking their brains to find topics where google won’t necessarily help. The Questions will be on our website at 7.30pm on 2nd October and people will have a couple of hours to put their answers together. We’ll post the answers on the website at around 9.45pm and trust entrants to mark their own sheets and just send us their score. The lead table will be uploaded over the weekend. It’s free to enter, but we’d appreciate any donations as we’ve no other fund raising activities but still have requests for financial help.

Fostering in Nottinghamshire

Nottinghamshire County Council is appealing for anyone who is interested in fostering to come forward and find out more about the rewarding role. The fostering team has been unable to hold their usual public fostering information evenings. However, they are still very much available and are now holding regular ‘virtual coffee and fostering chats’ via Microsoft Teams video calls. The next virtual chat will be on Monday 5th October at 11am, where you are welcome to join and listen to a short presentation about fostering with the Council. Call 0115 804 4440 to speak to a member of the fostering team.

Bramley Apple Festival

Plans are being made for a Bramley Apple Festival with a difference so that Southwell's world-famous cooking apple can still be celebrated in these unusual times. Instead of focusing most of the events on a single day the organisers are preparing for a week-long Festival which will enable the local community and visitors to the town to be socially distanced throughout the week leading up to Saturday 24th October. Attractions will include the popular shop window competition when traders throughout the town compete to create the most innovative apple-themed displays. "Other special events are being planned so that the Festival can involve the local community and organisations throughout the town, says Col Roger Merryweather, Festival Chairman. Full details will be revealed in this newspaper next month. Meanwhile for more details contact Southwell Tourist Information on 01636 816103 or visit www.southwellcouncil.com or www.visitsouthwell.co.uk.
