The Cryptic Crossword Group, which is entering its third Series, welcomes new members.  For those who are familiar with Cryptics there is a friendly Improvers section (free) on fortnightly Tuesdays, 11am to 12 noon.   The next sessions will be on 13th February 2024.  Venue: Heath Room, Town Council Offices, Toft Road.

For any Beginners, who might like to explore moving on from General Knowledge to Cryptics, the session runs from 2pm to 3 on the same day and at the same venue (also free). 

The Leader, Brian Wreford, wishes to mention that although Cryptics can seem a bit daunting to those who already enjoy General Knowledge or Quick crosswords, nevertheless with a little guidance they can be ‘ cracked ‘ and start you on a journey of discovery ……. new words, alternative meanings, humour, and highly imaginative anagrams.  Solving them can also provide a sense of achievement, humour and, perhaps most importantly, mental stimulation, which is thought to be highly beneficial these days.

Any members who wish to attend either the Beginners or Improvers session should contact Brian via the phone number above or by email via
