Cryptic Crosswords

Status:Active, open to new members
Contact:
When: Fortnightly on Thursday mornings 10:00 am-11:30 am
Venue: Members' homes

If you're a keen solver of cryptic crosswords and would like to get together with other fans of the same pastime, or if you are mystified by cryptic crosswords but would like to learn how to tackle them, then this could be the group for you.

Currently we begin each session by looking in detail at some of the types of clue found in cryptic crosswords, and then move on to solving a couple of puzzles with an appropriate level of difficulty. All solving is strictly collaborative, and not competitive!

There are always plenty of laughs and groans when we crack the codes with which crossword compilers attempt to bamboozle us.

For more information, please email group leader Steve J.
