Craft Fayre – Quiz Answers

Many thanks to everyone who supported The Well Craft Fayre and Coffee Morning, held in Cathcart Trinity Parish Church in September.

We were delighted with the number of people who came, the great conversations we were able to have and of course being able to raise almost £1000 for The Well’s funds. (Our treasurer was especially pleased with that!)

If you were able to come on the Saturday morning, you will know that we had quizzes for sale and promised that the answers would be available on the web site from the beginning of October. So here they are:)
