Our member Nola asked our local hospital if we could have a stand in the hospital foyer for a day, to tell patients, visitors and staff about how ebola is affecting Hastings SL. We had lots of useful conversations, received over £80 in donations, and sold quite a few of this year’s ORANGE QUIZ SHEET. If you like cryptic crosswords, just send your email address and £1 (a coin, or a cheque made out to HSLFL) to Robin Gray, Oaklands, Rock Lane, Hastings, East Sussex TN35 4NY, and Robin will email you back a copy. You have until mid-January to puzzle it all out. There are money prizes! – But we hope you’ll enjoy the clues, anyway. They’re all about the NHS, medicine and health, very appropriately. Any good at anagrams? How about ‘O horrid shame of these’ (12 letters).
