Our June 2022 word search puzzle (our last newsletter competition for a while - sniff!) was won by Michelle Ashworth of Rochdale Borough Council, who will shortly be receiving a £50 Amazon voucher.

We only received 6 correct entries for this competition, perhaps because of glitches in the "helpful" macro provided to assist you in filling in the grid.

Unused letters (reading from top to bottom and right to left) spelt out this text, after adding punctuation:

"I hope you're pleased with yourselves.  We could all have been killed or worse expelled.  Now if you don't mind I am going to bed!" (Hermione Granger)

Out of all the puzzles I've set over the last 30 months or so, the word searches were probably the most satisfying (and also probably the quickest to compile), but having done Excel keywords, European countries, Beatles songs, US states, film titles, singer names, musicals and Harry Potter characters, I was running out of ideas!
