|Thanks to everyone who came along to Keighley, hoped you enjoyed the format which seemed to go down well. A lot of postboxes in Keighley and a lot of hills, so well done to all. I will aim to do BingO again next year and make it a bit easier to collect a row. A few people got row 13-18 which included one of the 'V' postboxes for an extra bonus! Special credit to Dave for bringing pens to colour in with!|

There are 40, yes 40, postboxes on the map.
In a change to the usual format, please write down the ‘royal’ from when the postbox was built.
So if the emblem is ‘ER’ write ‘E’ in the box, if it is ‘GR’ write G. Not every postbox has one, so write ‘none’ if it is blank.
All controls are worth 10 points, except if you find a ‘VR’ that is worth 20!
For every row or column completed, there is a points bonus. This is shown at the end of the row or column. The answer sheet is shown below, this will be on the back of the map
