This afternoon I will be in the White Horse, Parson’s Green until about 7:00pm. All are welcome, and you could meet up with some of your favourite setters and bloggers.
As is usual for the weekend prize crosswords, I will select a few of the better clues and provide hints for them.
Don’t forget that you can give your assessment of the puzzle. Five stars if you thought it was great, one if you hated it, four, three or two if it was somewhere in between.
A full review of this puzzle will be published on Thursday, 8th July.
