    I didn't realise it was the same competition as the other mags - otherwise I wouldn't have have bought it again. It does say in this mag "Next Month - win a holiday to New Zealand".

    Sorry but I appear to have missed issue 9 as well. I am on holiday next week, but issue 11 will be out when I come back, so I will check what the comp is.
