Quizzes and Debating at Ryfields Village

6th February, 2012

Ryfields Village residents in Warrington have organised a quiz group that has been running almost as long as the retirement village has been open!

The Eggheads group at the Warrington retirement village.

The Eggheads group was formed ten years ago, two months after the official opening of the retirement village in Warrington, and has met once a week ever since, on Tuesdays between 2 and 4pm.

They have been so successful that they've even diversified: they're now also a debating society.

Question master Pat Eyres organises the quizzes but they have an open format, and Village Manager Judith Lathey said that the group members are very welcoming to new members.

"Residents and friends of the Village are all welcome," she explained. "It's non-competitive, and everyone can answer the questions. It's pure grey cell stimulation. Keep it up, ladies!"

Debates in the group are also all open, and, in the words of one group member, "Resolve absolutely nothing!"

For more information on the Eggheads group, please contact Ryfields Village Manager Judith Lathey on 01925 582 000.
