Roll up, roll up for the November night you don’t want to miss – the Swallowtail WI Quingo.
If you are wondering what on earth Quingo is, wonder no more – it’s the combination of bingo and quizzing. That’s right two awesome competitions for the price of one. Double the awesome for half the price. As usual, quiz mistress and all-around superstar Szara will be our MC for the night – delivering some brainteasing general knowledge questions then calling out numbers until someone shouts, ‘bingo!’.
If you’ve ever enjoyed one of our events, you’ll know we are serious about cake – and there will be plenty to feast on as you and your team compete for quingo glory. We’ve got prizes galore for the winners, and a raffle too – so you’ve got plenty of chances to be a winner on the night.

You may think that jigsaw racing seems like a tame pastime – you are sadly mistaken. The competition was fearsome at the Swallowtail WI inaugural jigsaw race, with six tables of puzzlers fighting to win the day.
Each table was given the same 500 piece puzzle to complete, and the rivalry was so intense that some members didn’t stop for a cuppa and a slice of cake, for fear of falling behind. The winning team did a sterling job, completing the largest amount of the jigsaw, and were crowned the winners. It was a pity we couldn’t start a few hours earlier as some of us would have loved the chance to put the final piece in place.
For those who weren’t up for a jigsaw, there was a hilarious and raucous game of Harry Potter Cards Against Humanity in the kitchen. For the uninitiated, the game is a very risqué affair, where players compete to play their cards in the most shocking way possible. Judging by the peals of laughter emanating from the room, the girls playing had a brilliant time. Just don’t ask what the most inventive answers were.
Excitingly, we turned 3 this month, and it's amazing how time has flown by since our first ever meeting. We're so lucky to have some amazing bakers in our group, and the awesome Kim baked us a beautiful and yummy cake to make the occasion.
During the jigsaw race, and with a slice of cake in hand, the book club congregated to discuss our latest read – Things A Bright Girl Can Do by Sally Nichols. This young adult novel told the stories of teen suffragettes Evelyn, May and Nell as they navigated the violent and scary world of activism, and coped with the tragedy and horror of World War I.
The debate around the book was lively and interesting, with some members falling in love with the story, and others unimpressed by the writing and character development. Regardless of which side you were on, we all agreed that it was a thought-provoking book to debate and gave us a lot to think about. For our next book club, we’re going to read This Is Going To Hurt by Adam Kay and Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout.
After this jam-packed and fun-filled evening, it was time to go home. Here's to the next three year's of the Swallowtail WI.
