The group started in November 2018 using a series of 6 classes for complete beginners.
Classes are organised at a time to suit participants, as and when there is a demand for a new course.
We will offer the course formally about once a year to catch new U3A members and for those who want a refresher,
We would normally meet for about an hour of learning and practice over 6 sessions
Although cryptic crosswords may look totally impenetrable and mysterious at first glance, there is a method and structure to the clues, which, once learned, makes solving them a real possibility. However, you still need some lateral thinking and wild imagination.
Solving cryptic crosswords can be a lot of fun, raising many smiles, as well as some frustrations, but it really exercises the grey matter and helps keep our minds alert and young.
If you would like to be a participant in our next taster course, of if you have any questions or comments, please contact Peter - send a message to the Cryptic Crosswords Group Coordinator
