Last Thursday evening Reigate Manor played host to a curry and quiz night to raise funds for the Christmas lights put on by The Reigate Business Guild. The evening was extremely well attended with quiz goers joining in from many of Reigate’s local businesses including teams from Run Reigate, Lewis Charles, Willows, White & Sons and many more. The ballroom at Reigate Manor was packed with over 140 guests enjoying a curry in between 8 rounds of a fairly challenging quiz. The quiz was put together by the team at Reigate Manor however it was assumed a professional quiz company had been involved as it was such a good evening! Coincidentally the team put together by Jes Chandler, the Chairman of the guild came away with the winner’s trophy and a case of prosecco but we’ve been assured it wasn’t a fix!
Reigate Business Guild was set up in 1991. The Guild enjoys the support of one hundred and eighteen organisations from in and around Reigate town centre, ranging from large corporate businesses to sole trader shops and restaurants, all individuals who care about Reigate and its surroundings. The Guild are responsible for the hugely successful Reigate Christmas Fair held on Church Street each year and fundraising events such as these are vital to allow the guild to put the event on. This years fair is taking place on Saturday 30th November from 11.30am-5pm.
Jes Chandler, Chair of the guild said “What a fantastic evening, every single person I have spoken to has been gushing about what a lovely evening it was. It was a very professionally run event, with great food and a lovely atmosphere in the room, well done and thanks to all involved.”
