The group meets monthly at 2:00 pm on the first Friday of the month in Grange Institute. We use the normal TV rules, except for the method of scoring – ours is less draconian – each word submitted scores the number of letters used, so at the end of the session each participant has a fairly healthy score! Once a year we have semi-finals and a final and the treasured ‘Countdown Final’ teapot is awarded to the winner. In October it was time for the “Countdown” semi-finals and final, held in the Grange Institute.
The group, at the moment, is not large and we would welcome some more members. If anyone is interested in joining the group, or requires further information, please contact Joanna Lindley, Groups Liaison Officer, on 015395 33387.
Please note that there will be no Countdown meetings during March and April 2020.
