As well as supporting independent local retailers by grocery shopping at the Farm Shop instead of a supermarket, I’ve decided to avoid the giant pub chains too this month.

Usually on a Sunday night I head to a pub quiz, this month I’ve persuaded the team to go to the Tuesday night quiz at my local pub, The Queen’s Arms. They are also CAMRA accredited, so if I’m feeling brave I may just try a local real ale, instead of my usual tipple!
