It’s certainly true that we’re in strange times at the moment, but it must also be said that the lockdown is still allowing for glimpses of happier times to shine through. The college was really thankful to Laura, who recently organised a stonking quiz night to round off the celebration of St George’s day (April 23). It was particularly good to be together with our brothers and sisters of the college – albeit virtually – except maybe for the literal G&Ts enjoyed which really lent a feel of Thursday bar-nights to the proceedings!

 I enjoyed hosting Thomas CR and Charlie, our postulant – (himself a college alumnus) – for the evening, and their presence onscreen ensured that we romped home with a winning score following rounds on a range of topics from Name that cathedral to Food and Drink, English literature and Animals. We had a great laugh together and a memorable time amidst the vicissitudes of the lockdown. Thanks to all who took part, and again to Laura, our sister for organising. God awaits us yet with the fruits of fellowship and love in our difficulties. I remain thankful for these, and not least that quarantine cannot quell quizzing!
