Dartmouth quiz is a big success....but still no news on Billy Tuppence
A fundraiser for two Dartmouth charities has been hailed as a big success.
The inaugural Dartmouth Apprentice/ Dartmouth Museum annual quiz was attended by more than 60 people who enjoyed great food, wonderful drink and a fun quiz hosted by historian and writer Phil Scoble.
Introduced by Dartmouth Mayor Paul Allen, Phil served up two rounds split between questions about food and the apprentice itself and Dartmouth history – and the teams gave it their all in trying to answer every question.
The overall winners were ‘Dave’s Babes’ - the team of Dartmouth Museum’s own David Lingard – perhaps appropriately! But that doesn’t tell the whole story, with an exciting three-way tiebreak at the end of two tough rounds between the eventual winners, a team from Dartmouth In Bloom and ‘Parsunut’ – a team including Dartmouth Caring’s Dee Nutt and her husband Martin.

David Lingard won the trophy for his team by knowing that Delia Smith advises putting a hole in the rounded end of an egg to stop it cracking during boiling!
Unfortunately there were no answers forthcoming on the question of who ‘Billy Tuppence’ is – the picture in the Dartmouth Museum archive that no one can identify. It means one mystery will remain unsolved for a little while longer and the special prize that had been offered for evidence of who the man was remains unclaimed.
Dartmouth Apprentice Manager Nina Stanesby said: “The evening was all about raising funds and we are pleased to announce that £407 was raised on the night for the museum, and we’ll announce how much we raised for the apprentice programme once we have the final figures after costs.
“The mayor Paul Allen was kind enough to introduce the evening and pull the winners of our amazing spread of raffle prizes from various generous local businesses and individuals. Thanks are due to John Putt and Tim Trent on behalf of the museum and of course our Quizmaster Phil! We’d also like to thank all the people who came along and had a wonderful night – we look forward to next year!”
