L&C Event 1

A spokesman for the British Retail Consortium said: “It’s spring. Just look at this picture of a rolling field, sunshine and green grass. Buy six hot cross buns.

“If you think it’s still January it’s because you’ve not had your chocolate eggs yet. There’s new ones this year, probably. Also Pancake day is round this time, so don’t forget lemons and Nutella.

“And the clocks go forward soon, so maybe you need some extra food to do with that. And booze. And a new outfit.

“Buy these Lindt bunnies.”
