    Win £100 - Answer is - HOPE IS PATIENCE WITH THE LAMP LIT ( page 3 )

    Win £3000 - Answer is BRANDY ( page 7 )

    Please note
    In the magazine it has two closing dates 19/12 ( £100 ) and 30/12 ( £3000 )
    As both answers are on the same entry form, it may be wise to use the first date 19/12 as the closing date for both competitions ( hope this makes sense )

    Good luck everyone
