    Allendale Pub Style Quiz

    Another fabulous round of our Allendale Pub Style quiz!

    Thank you to Jo for organising another fun quiz for all our team.

    Made up of 8 rounds, we had some competition on the Girl Power and It’s Raining Men rounds, and some very confused faces at the Intros of songs in the Music round. We also had an Animal, Food & Drink, General Knowledge, Logos and Mystery round, giving everyone their chance to shine!

    It was lovely to see some old faces and get all of our colleagues together for a night of laughs and rivalry – even if it was through our screens.

    Ryan managed to score the most points this week; the rest of us better start practising as he’s the one to beat for our next Quiz!
