Quiz Night - Thanks

The Friends of OBHS would like to say a big thank you to everyone who participated in the quiz on Friday night. It was a really enjoyable night out and raised lots of money for the school's outdoor gym project.

In particular we'd like the thank Chris Furness for organising the quiz, Hugh Lynch for hosting the event and the Attleborough Writers' Group for donating a selection of their own books to the prize table.

Attleborough Writers' Group are launching their next anthology 'MaD SHRIMP' on 2 August and would be pleased to welcome anyone interested in helping them to celebrate on the day. Click here for more details...
