The 29th annual Wimborne in Bloom Wine and Wisdom Quiz Evening, which took place in the Allendale Centre, raised more than £1,000.
Twenty-seven teams pitted their wits against each other with eight rounds of questions and in a closely fought contest Phoenix Dorset, were the winners taking home the Eco Composting trophy. Each member of the team also received a bottle of red wine. In second place, was a team from the Museum of East Dorset with third place going to the Oakdale Oaks.
The raffle which included vouchers to be spent at Renoufs, donated by O’Haras Funeral Service, raised £431 and thanks to Barclays Matching Programme well over £1,000 will have been raised which will be used towards filling up the flower towers and planters around town this summer.
Wimborne in Bloom thanks all who supported the event by participating, helping with the running, providing the refreshments or who donated prizes for the raffle.
Next year’s event will take place on Friday 1 March.
