Fox News! – Funds raised for Fibromyalgia, Body Shop party, Quiz kitty and Winter leagues starting

Quiz Update

Monthly quiz returned last evening and was won by Anty’s Mob. Runner’s up, Lads On Tour both winning cash prizes.

We’ve changed a couple of things in the quiz and we now have a kitty that the pub adds £5 every month (rollover if it’s not won).

Next monthly quiz is Oct 13th and the pot will be £10. Everyone welcome £1 pp entry fee, no limit on team members AND a free bowl of chips at half time!

Charity Events

Fibromyalgia Association UK LogoThe weekly quiz last week was in aid of charity and it was written and run by Sian. We held a raffle as well and on Saturday, a car boot sale. We raised £280 in total, half donated to FMAUK (Fibromyalgia Association) and the other half to Stamford Fibromyalgia Support Group.

If anyone would like any information on the condition that Sian herself struggles with, please pop in and have a chat to her. She’d be happy to help and put you in touch with the local group.

Many thanks to everyone that donated raffle prizes and items for the car boot sale and for coming along and spending your money!

Winter Leagues

Winter being around the corner, the quiz and domino leagues start again over the next two weeks.

Along with this, we are now entered in a local darts league and are looking for those that have already put their names down to play, and anyone else interested, to come along this Thurs eve at 7.30 ish to go over the details.

Upcoming Events

Oct 7th we’re hosting a BODYSHOP party. 7.30 start and everyone is most welcome. No pressure to buy ( not even a drink!).

Nov 4th will be a Christmas (and general) card and small gift evening. As above.

1st Anniversary

This week sees our first anniversary here so (as always) we’d like to thank all of our customers for their continued support. Here’s to an even bigger and better twelve months!

Pub Quizzers raise £150 for MS Trust’s Be Bold in Blue

The Petanque team have not had the best of starts to the season with a couple of losses under their belts!

Wednesday May 1st saw us holding the M.S. Trust’s Blue Week quiz. As Colin & Janet Heasell were in charge of the questions, I got to take part and had great fun, joining the team that came second to Anty’s Mob.

The pub and Colin & Janet donated a few prizes and we held a raffle for them. With the money from the raffle and Anty’s Mob handing over their winnings to the cause, we raised £150 for the trust!

Thank you to everyone that came along and supported this and it was lovely to see two teams from South Luffenham too!

Easter Car Boot Sale raises £242 for Charity

First of all a huge thank you to everyone who came along on such a bitterly cold day to buy and/or sell at the car boot sale here on Easter Monday. With the money from the pitches and the raffle we held for the Tower of Temptation, (won by Tracy Bannister) we raised a little over £242!! Thank you everyone.

Wednesday quiz was interesting! Seems Anty’s Mob are great quizzers but no good at maths, so initially, they were announced to have come last with Alzheimers first and the Old Contemptibles in second place again. Anty then realised they’d not added their score correctly ( and I put my hand up to admit my shame in not double checking as I always do!) so they tied with the Alzheimers! Several tie-break questions later, Anty’s Mob were again victorious. Looking forward to next weeks quiz as one of Anty’s Mob has volunteered to write the questions so I can take part! (thanks Kay).

Many thanks for your continued support. It means so much to us all.

Contented Old Contemptibles

It is with HUGE pleasure that we announce that last night’s weekly quiz was won by The Old Contemptibles. After languishing in last place most weeks, to see them win on a tie-break was a fantastic! Well done! Anti’s Mob lost out on the tie-break, followed by Alzheimers, then the Quizzards and last but not least, the Lone Ranger.

The monthly quiz is happening this Sunday (17th) and we look forward to seeing you there or at the mixed doubles darts match on Saturday (16th).

Pub domino team claimed another victory this week but the quiz team lost out again.

Thank you for your continuing support.

Valentine’s Darts

Domino team scored a win this week after last weeks loss. The quiz team lost by ONE point after last weeks win!

Last weeks winners of the Wednesday quiz were the Alzheimers, who this week were beaten into last place by the Old Contemptibles with Anty’s mob winning again.

Due to lack of support, the Thursday coffee mornings have come to a close. If there’s anything anyone would like us to try, please let us know.

We have been toying with the idea of running a weight management support group. No weekly fees or weigh-in, just a get together of like-minded people who can share tips, advice, support and encouragement. If this sounds what you’re looking for, would you prefer daytime or evenings? Please let us know. Don’t be shy!

Feb 16th we’re holding a mixed double Valentines dart match. Pairs must be one male, one female! £2 per person to enter and the winners will win a cash prize. Doesn’t matter if you’re not very good, just come along and give it a go and have fun!

The following evening (Feb 17th) is the monthly quiz. Teams of no more than four, £1 per person to enter and as usual, there are cash prizes.

Looking forward to seeing you at one or more of these events.

Fox and Hounds Update (week 1 & 2, 2013)

Quiz and domino teams had a rest over the festive period but started back again this week. The quiz team were home and won and the domino team were away and lost 🙁

The weekly quiz was not held on Boxing day, but was won by The Alzheimer’s team last week after four tie-break questions! And by Anty’s team this week. Seems they are determined to share he spoils between them, not giving The Old Contemptibles, The Coogies, Matthew and The Apprentice or Annonymous the chance.

So, if you think you’re up for the challenge, Wednesday evenings, 8.30 (prompt) for £1 pp entry (+ £3.50 if you fancy a light supper) , come along and give them a run for their money!

The monthly quiz is on this Sunday (13th) 8 pm start. £1 pp entry and a maximum of FOUR players to a team please.

Thursday coffee mornings are still running.

Pub Quiz results and Christmas Greetings

This week saw the first loss of the season for the domino team but a win again for the quiz team.

The weekly quiz was won by Anty’s Mob with The Old Comtempitble’s dragging themselves off the bottom slot for the first time and coming a very respectable second. (Alzheimer’s and Coogies third and fourth respectively)

Looking forward to the carol’s around the tree tomorrow (Dec 21st) followed by the Christmas draw later in the evening.

We’d like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy, health new year. Thank you all for the support you’ve given us over the last three months.

Christmas Quiz, Carols and Draw

Been an odd week here at the Fox & Hounds (even by our standards!).

The monthly quiz was very well supported yet again and was won by first-timers, The Mikado’s.

The domino team had their match re-arranged to next week but the quiz team were again victorious!

There was no weekly quiz this week as we had a large Christmas party booked but it will return on 19th December with a hint of Christmas about it.

Friday 21st we will be doing our Christmas draw. Tickets are still available for 50p and ALL money goes to the prizes. The Draw will be at approx 9.30pm after Carols around the tree starting at 7.30pm. Everyone is most welcome, children included for the carols.

Alzheimers Corner reclaimed their number one spot at the weekly quiz.

Sunday 9th Dec is our monthly quiz. Maximum of four to a team for that but still £1 pp entry.

We’ve just finished our first coffee morning and it was lovely! We open just before nine on Thursdays for teas/coffees and home made cakes. Happy to see anyone that fancies a warm and a natter.
