The joys and perils of business life are examined in a new book. The behind-the-scenes stories of some of the village’s iconic businesses such as The Post Office, Betts and Loyd and The Wheatsheaf, are vividly told in a series of interviews. More than a dozen businesses are featured in all. The book, called Roundabout A Year in the Life of Little Common, is written by village journalist Philip Elms and charts everyday events throughout 2017. It is available from Little Common Post Office (from 3 April) at a special launch price of £9.99.
