8th March - Quiz Night

There was a real threat that this quiz would be under candle light after a power outage in parts of Clewer Village during the aftern noon. However, SSE managed to sort it out in time for the quiz. As usual, there was a good turn out with Hettie's Heroes winning on the night. The rollover wasn't won this week, instead it was a packet of crisps that Linda Morle won. Our next rollover will be £90.

9th March - Swan Elders

The Swan Elder at the Green Room College was Joe Donnelly, bass player from The Silencers, now Caezar. Joe talked about his illustrious career in music, and his life growing up in Glasgow with music as the thread that kept him on track. This gave the students an opportunity to ask questions and learn how music can play a huge part in your life.
