Can you give the reasoning behind the Christmas Quiz please because I’m too thick to work it out. Thanks
Betty’s right – we omitted to publish a solution, though reader David did supply the correct final number in the sequence. The answer is that it’s the street numbers of places in Wanstead where one might have a pub crawl – ie Cuckfield (31 High Street), Nightingale on the Green (51 Nightingale Lane), Duke (79 Nightingale Lane), Manor House (129 High Street) and the George (159 High Street). The wobble on each number increases as the pub crawl goes on.
Now it’s of course dry January and such information seems like something from yesteryear.
