The History Society's latest quiz has just been released. It's about money — coins, notes, credit, the economy, finance etc.
It costs just £1, and is available from Langport Library, Art Tea Zen and Shepherds Bakers.

The closing date isn't until the end of November, so there's plenty of time to puzzle over the clues. As usual, there's a mixture of puns, anagrams and cryptic clues — all of them completely original.

There's a prize of £10 for the winner. So give those little grey cells some exercise and try the Money Quiz.

If you'd like to buy a copy but can't get in to Langport, just phone Colin on 01458 251118 or email him on colin.edwards33@yahoo.com. Please contact him if you or your business would like to sell copies for L&DHS. Even if you don't want to complete the quiz, just buying a copy helps to support their activities.

The History Society compiles one or two quizzes each year to raise funds. The last quiz, which finished in March, raised over £145. This helps to pay the costs of running their Talks Programme and producing leaflets.
