Barkham Village Residents Association

I got the idea for this issue's quiz whilst watching the recent Snooker World Championships. Don't worry, there are no questions on obscure snooker players but each question or answer features the colour of a snooker ball. As there are more questions than colours, one colour appears more than once, but there is some logic to this!
