"T for TOWNS" (The Fourth Dragonfly Quiz)

Consider the following cryptic clues ~ all answers begin with the letter "T"

1. Regulation concerning caravaning in County Durham
(3,3)
2. Desmond suggests a lower second degree (4)
3. He'll bet you can't outrun fact anyway (4,10)
4. It's restricted to take cab back with company (7)
5. Two-thirds of wood to this country goes to half of 2
on the River Niger (8)

The first is a place in the NE, the next is a person's name, then an occupation, followed by a plant and the final one is a place name abroad.

Interested? There are 100 similar clues in the Fourth Dragonfly Quiz, whose full title is "T is for Towns 'twixt Tees 'n' Tweed", which contains clues to 50 Towns (cities and villages) in the NE of England and 50 words starting with the letter "T" (with five themed groups of 10). Copies of the new Quiz can be obtained from the organiser: Mrs Pauline Ward, 9 Hassop Road, Reddish, Stockport, Cheshire, SK5 6ST. Entry is �1 and cheques should be made payable to "Stockport NHS Foundation Trust (Dragonfly Team)" which will support the work of a local Children's Hospice visiting children who are spending their last days in the bosom of their family.

Don't forget to enclose a stamped addressed envelope carrying the correct postage please. Remember that there is a surcharge of �1 imposed by Royal Mail on all letters with insufficient postage.

You will have until the end of June 2009 to submit your answers and �50 has been allocated for prizes ~ including a prize for obtaining the average score and another prize for scoring below the average!

At last. I've been waiting for this for ages, and looking forward to your littles odes too. Crofter's quizzes are definitely worth the entry fee, so my cheque will be in the post tomorrow.
How many pages does your quiz have? Just so I'll include a decent sized envelope and enough postage for two copies.
