    Re: Crosswords Collection Issue 10 (see posts #2487 and #2500)

    It looks like TAB have deleted this mag early by mistake. Ending date is definitely 01/11.

    Someone needs to email puzzlesfeedback@bauer.co.uk to ask them to re-instate the entry form.

    Code Breakers and Arrowwords
    Hi All,

    I was wondering if anyone would be interested in taking over the posting of Arrowwords and Code Breakers from me

    I am happy to continue with the puzzle selection as I can pick this up locally - the other 2 I have to do by subscription

    I dont seem to have recieved my issue 11 arrowwords so if anyone has that and can post the answers that would be great

    Kind Regards

    Emma

    I have checked availability of these and my local Morrisons stock them both.
    Unless there are any objections
    I would be quite willing to take over posting of these from Issue 11 onwards
