Coffee and Crosswords


Event Description

Do you enjoy crossword puzzles, but sometimes get stuck on a tricky clue (or two!). Then why not join our friendly Tuesday afternoon ‘Coffee and Crosswords’ club?

There’ll be a chance to learn more about cryptic crosswords including how to recognise different types of clues. We encourage those attending to bring along some clues of their own to work on from cryptic puzzles they have been stuck on. The emphasis will be on learning together in an informal group, guided by a friendly and experienced tutor.

There will also be an opportunity to play some online word games such as Countdown during these weekly sessions.

  • Duration: 60 mins
  • Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (no replay available)

Meet the Host, Angela

Angela has lived in Suffolk since 1986 and is an active member of her local University of the Third Age. For the last two years, she has led a Cryptic Crossword Group for East Suffolk U3A and a second online group for TrustU3A. Both groups have continued to meet virtually when face-to-face contact was not possible.

Angela is a member of a canal boat syndicate and loves exploring the inland waterways of the midlands and north of England with friends aboard the narrowboat ‘Honeystreet’. As well as doing word puzzles she enjoys walking, taking part in pub quizzes, and discovering wildlife.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
