OUR Trader of the week this week is Choccotastic - Ledbury's very own chocolate powerhouse.

As we head towards Valentine's Day on February 14 when Choccotastic is gearing up to make it very personal with a host of personalised offers.

Heather Cambridge, owner of Choccotastic explains:

"Our Valentine stock is now on sale online and in store. We are giving away a free 'Bag of Love' with every order placed online with us (www.choccotastic.com) during February.

"We have handmade truffles, chocolate roses, personalised valentines gifts, and rude valentines chocolates.

"Our make your own hamper station is stocked up, simply fill it with goodies from the shop and we will wrap it all up for you.

"Chocolate for Valentines is still a popular choice with more and more people seeking out personalised options.

"We can put any message onto our chocolate bars to make it truly unique. Valentines sets us up nicely for our next 2 big chocolate events in the calendar, Mothers day and of course Easter.

"We will be attending a fantastic Valentines themed market at Bartestree Village Hall on Sunday February 12, where we will be selling lots of market exclusives."
