• Housewares Magazine’s Mystery Shopper visited Brent Cross Shopping Centre in north-west London on the morning before Bonfire Night and voted Fenwick the winner of a survey of the retail destination’s housewares retailers. It beat John Lewis and Lakeland for its ‘great Christmassy atmosphere and lots of new products’.

• CellarDine founder and managing director Peter Dunne pulled off a publicity coup on the BBC when he was invited onto Chris Evans’ Radio 2 Drivetime Show to discuss the development of his Rouge 02 electronic wine breather. The programme reviewed the original and stainless steel model, together with

the new Pocket Rouge 02. Chris thought the product ‘a real winner’.
