It's been more than 20 years but Carl and Chris (from Costermonger) have once again joined forces, this time to sell Pextenement East Lee Soft Cheese!
This is how they looked all those years ago (excuse the old photographs!)......
** Carl is on the left, Chris on the right!! Not changed much!
You never know, they might be dusting the guitars off again soon......

We finally got there today with the launch of our first cheese - East Lee Soft cheese!
It's not been easy! It's taken 12 months hard work, working with 58 suppliers (who've benefited to the tune of 110 invoices!) and numerous council departments, agencies and organisations. But it's good now to finally see the cheese being bought by the public of Todmorden.
This week has seen us create (and individually wrap!) hundreds of cheeses to simultaneously launch at the Crumbly Cheese stall in the indoor market and the Bear Wholefoods and Cafe. In addition, the Todmorden Vintner Bistro and Cherries Tea Room have now included the cheese on their menus.
Inbetween producing the cheese, we've been interviewed by the Todmorden News to coincide with the launch. To view the article, see http://www.todmordennews.co.uk/news/Say-cheesebecause-Todmorden-now-has.5552072.jp
This is how the cheeses looked on the Crumbly Cheese stall. Andrew spent ages arranging them like this, it didn't last long......
