Barkham Village Residents Association

Regular readers may remember the theme in the autumn edition was that the answers to the questions started with the letters from the first half of the alphabet.  There were 10 questions but 13 letters, so 3 of the questions had 2-word answers – but all in alphabetical order.

This time the questions cover the second half of the alphabet, but with the same rules as previously.
