Chocolate Week – We need you!

We’re looking for volunteers (who can write a little) to blog for us on about their experiences during Chocolate Week in the UK (12-18 Oct 2009) and to report on what’s happening for the week in their local area.

The idea is to cover as much of the Week as we can, not just Seventypercent events. The posts don’t have to be masterpieces or expert-level, just the everyday experiences of fine chocolate fans during the week. If the posts can be accompanied by photos, that really helps the presentation. Video clips are even better.

The events can be the paid formal kind, reviews of the many samplings going on during the week, or just you own personal Chocolate Week experiences.

Also if you are attending the excellent Chocolate Unwrapped exhibition then it would be great if you can share your experiences there on Seventypercent.

If you are interested, please email us at and we’ll set you up with a login and help you to get started.

    Thanks Dawn, though this isn’t really an announcement page! It’s probably a good idea to have one though, so that’s something we’ll look at adding once we’ve got Chocolate Week out of the way.
