    Please note that we have regular posters for all the TAB Puzzle magazines. These are listed in post #1. They go to considerable effort and expense to post each month, including making arrangements for someone else to cover if they are unable to post at any time. This system has worked for many years and it is very rare for any magazine to be missed. As a courtesy, please leave the posting up to them.

    Every now and then we ask for new volunteers to become regular posters, and these requests will be posted in this thread.

    Thanks

    https://takeabreak.co.uk/competitions contains the TAB weekly and monthly special mags so this mag is best dealt with in the same way ie. posted on the main forum and put in the index HERE
