    Win £100 - Answer is - BE SO GOOD THEY CAN'T IGNORE YOU ( page 3 )

    Win £3000 - Answer is - GOBLIN ( page 7 )

    Please note
    In the magazine it has two closing dates 21/11 ( £100 ) and 28/11 ( £3000 )
    As both answers are on the same entry form, it may be wise to use the first date 21/11 as the closing date for both competitions ( hope this makes sense )

    Good luck everyone
