    This is a wordsearch where the leftover letters give the answer.
    The theme was 'picnic words' and the answer was something to watch out for.

    Win £100 - Answer is - EVERYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE IS REAL ( Page 3 )

    Win £3000 - Answer is - RATIFY ( Page 7 )

    Please note
    In the magazine it has two closing dates 01/08 ( £100 ) and 08/08 ( £3000 )
    As both answers are on the same entry form, it may be wise to use the first date 01/08 as the closing date for both competitions.
    ( Hope this makes sense )

    Good luck everyone

    Just to clarify post #2811 above - TAB have been a little careless again.

    This is issue 7 - July (although TAB seem to have stopped using issue numbers)

    The link is correct (even though it says June in the URL)
