BRAAS supporting Corbie Inn Bras for Africa
You might not be aware of it but many African women don’t get the support they really need!
That’s not a flippant statement but surprisingly because of the complex manufacturing process involved in bra making they are one of the most desirable second-hand clothing items for women in undeveloped parts of West Africa (Oxfam ran an appeal last year).

Who won the Halloween Quiz? Aaaahhh! Dunno!
The Corbie Inn’s first Halloween Quiz took place on Thursday 30 October and was even better attended than usual!
So busy was it that the quiz master had to vacate his usual position and run the quiz almost having to stand at the central pillar.
Many of the participants had booked tables for a meal beforehand to make sure they had their place for the Halloween and charity quiz night and a good number had also dressed up, if that is the right description, getting into the spirit of the evening.
