Despite rain, many were enjoying the Big Tasting Night laid on by the traders at Number Eleven Cheshire Street with live music as an added bonus.

Oxtail & Trotter was packed and order forms for Christmas were being snapped up with rave reports received about the pork pie samples – well worth a purchase next time you are in.

WineGeek were back in JA's cafe and seemed to be doing a brisk trade with orders as a result of their samples of fine wines while the cafe had laid on tastings of quiches and a sticky chocolate orange tiffin which were all deemed excellent.

The Village Green Grocer had a superb display of fruit and vegetables on offer plus a wide range of home-made chutneys and pickles, many varieties new to your correspondent.

If you fancied a haircut or close shave, the Village Barber was open for business.

A real revelation, if you haven't been in since the business expanded next door a few weeks ago is LLLovely.

The display of chocolates and confectionary is staggering. Samples of Lubeck marzipan, the best in the world, were on offer as well as home-made chocolates.

The shop should now be a destination attraction for coaches and visitors of all sorts – although we didn't see and Liquorice Allsorts on show. The selection is fabulous, the display just as good.

If you can escape from LLLovely without placing a huge Christmas order, you are extremely strong willed.
