    6a Scowling
    13a Pedant
    45d Evacuee

    Just wondering about the letter 'L' you have for 56a: I think the answer could be Amity (Amy, a girl, 'swallows' the word 'it'- amity = friendship)

    56a Amity (Amy swallows IT)
    8d Wedding Bells ('time for ringing' is when groom puts ring on bride_
    27a Beans ??? (Jelly beans, you'd roast coffee beans in a stove ?)
