A team of school girls and those young in spirit took centre stage at a drama society quiz.

A dozen teams competed at last Saturday’s Campbeltown Bowling Club fundraiser for the Peninver Players’ current production. It will be staged at next year’s Victoria Hall drama festival.

Peninver Players (PP) were founded in 1963 by former members of the Campbeltown Young Farmers’ drama club.

PP has never missed a drama festival since 1964 and, in 2017, the team won first place at both Kintyre and Ardrishaig festivals.

The event was compered by Players’ stalwart and leading man of many productions Councillor John Armour, who set the questions.

Top team was a trio, with 77 points, led by Campbeltown Salvation Army Major Ben Russell and also featuring Phil Currie and Harry Grogan.

The Courier’s Dynamic Duo’s 65½ might look respectable but put the team halfway down the order.
