LAST CHANCE TO BOOK FOR SUPPER & QUIZ – SUNDAY DEADLINE!

There are still some places available for the fabulous Corsham Walking Festival Evening Quiz and Buffet Supper at Springfield Campus. We have to close bookings on the evening of Sunday 3rd June as the caterers need final numbers on Monday.

The food is delicious and and the quiz highly entertaining with great prizes donated by generous local businesses. OK so you haven’t been before and have not organised a team, just book your ticket and come along anyway – you will be made welcome and teams will form on the night. After all that walking you deserve it!
