Masons Arms Monthly Charity Pub Quiz - a fun night out!

Quizzes usually take place at 8.00pm on the last Sunday of each month. Check the Nor Lye News or look out for the board outside the pub for confirmation of the date. Why not come along and join us for a great night out, and the chance to win a bottle of wine? There is no limit to team size as the Quiz is for fun and prestige, although it does tend to get rather serious during the final round if the scores are close!

Want more from your local shop?

We are always looking to provide the services that local people want. If you have a suggestion for any service or products that you would like to see, please let us know.

The shop desperately needs Paper Delivery Helpers.  Boys or girls looking for extra pocket money, or early risers looking to earn a little extra whilst walking the dog perhaps.  If you know anyone that is interested, then please contact Anna in the shop.  Without paper delivery helpers the ability for us to provide this service to the Village is under threat so please, please help us find some helpers.
