Cllr. Doug Brown was Co-Opted to the Parish Council on 13th January 2021 to fill a casual vacancy. He has been setting quizzes since 1991; originally for a string of pubs in Wiltshire, but since ‘retiring’ from the pub-quiz scene in 2016, he has continued to set and run quizzes for various charities including the Mary How Trust and Stone Pillow based in Chichester, which offers assistance to the homeless.

Cllr. Brown will set a monthly quiz for everyone to enjoy on the first Sunday of the month, beginning Sunday 3rd April.

In the mean time, look out for his 'Connections' quiz, which has been published in the Parish Council's first edition Newsletter, which should be arriving at the end of February!

In this first quiz there are 9 general knowledge questions, the answers to which are all connected. The answer to question 10 is the connection between the previous 9 answers. All the answers will fit the connection. Therefore, if you find yourself looking at one of your answers which doesn’t obviously fit the connection then it’s either a very obscure connection or, more likely, it's wrong and you will need to have a re-think! Enjoy the challenge.
