When the local press come calling, it's hard to say no. If there's one thing we probably don't need at the moment, it's the kind of publicity generated by a feature in our local newspaper, the Leicester Mercury.
The Saturday edition of the Mercury has a full page devoted to showcasing Leicestershire food and drink producers and foody events. Always worth a read, and just the sort of feature designed to turn the heads of impressionable micro-producers such as ourselves. Oh dear! One half-hour interview and a quick photo-call in the garden later, we're splashed across the newsprint like a pair of eager-to-please spaniels.
I must admit that because we were away this weekend, I haven't seen the full gory printed version, only the online copy. We could do without the Wurzels, and park bench history lesson, but it's not too bad I suppose. If it gives the fantastic team at the Criterion a bit more publicity, then I'll be happy enough, and it should just about compensate for the ribbing we're sure to get over the next few days.
