Win a luxury hamper in our May newsletter!

Easter may have come and gone, but there’s still World Chocolate Day to look forward to on July 7!

The lovely people at Noble and Stace Chocolatiers have given us the wonderful – and delicious – prize of a luxury chocolate hamper worth over £40.

Noble and Stace Chocolatiers are just one of the many artisan food producers in the South Downs, priding themselves on using locally-sourced ingredients. A three-time finalist in the Sussex Food & Drink Awards for Food Producer of the Year, the West Sussex-based business has been fulfilling chocolate cravings since 2015 under the helm of Head Chocolatier Mike Noble. Mike stepped away from the corporate world to fulfil a lifelong dream of becoming a chocolatier and now prides himself on sticking to small batch production to ensure absolute freshness and collaborating with other like-minded local food producers. He also runs chocolate-making workshops at locations across the South Downs.

To be in with a chance of winning this fantastic prize, all you need to do to enter is sign up to the South Downs newsletter before 31 May 2019.

Anyone who signs up as a new member of this newsletter during May will automatically be entered but to make sure our existing readers don’t miss out you can also enter by emailing us at the address below before 31 May 2019.
