What with the Gruffalo visiting, the Light Up and people starting to get organised for Christmas, we’ve had a very busy few weeks – I’m not complaining, it’s been great! And today we’ve been celebrating #SmallBusinessSaturday.

Ariel and Horrid Henry have been into Chicken and Frog, as well as going for a stroll around the town – especially the wonderful Ongar Road, where you can find so many brilliant shops and food outlets.

Henry was rather naughty, as you can see,

No jumping on the furniture Henry!

Luckily he wasn’t as cheeky when he went for a walk around the town. I’m not sure even Henry was outrageous enough to jump on other people’s furniture…at least, I don’t think he did.

The beautiful Ariel braved the cold, visiting the Ongar Road, the High Street, the Baytree Centre and Crown Street. Here she is in the warm, looking gorgeous,
