HSL’s Weekly Quiz! 14th May


You know what time it is, it’s quiz time!

Rumour has it that some of you are getting great scores on our weekly quiz, so we’ve upped our game. Below are twenty questions that will hopefully really put you to the test – oh, and obviously we want you to enjoy it too!

For us here at HSL, we’re still enjoying the lovely sunshine and jumping on the bandwagon with all the fun lockdown activities – baking banana bread, completing puzzles (nature and wildlife ones are our favourites!), and video calling loved ones.

We’ve enjoyed doing these things so much that we’ve made a promise to ourselves to continue doing them when we’re back to normality – because if they bring a smile to our faces, why not?!

With this in mind, we’re going to continue hosting our weekly quizzes for you all – it’s been really lovely to be able to share this with you at home, and fun for the entire team at HSL. We hope you’ll continue to join us weekly and keep putting your noggins to the test!

As ever, if you would like a friendly chat about your favourite TV series, radio show, or anything else at all, our Comfort Specialists welcome your call!
