That’s right, Movember is a few days on the go now, and you may have noticed more men wearing various hirsute appendages below their noses, all in the name of a fantastic cause to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues.

Then there’s getting warm and cosy indoors, and sitting by a real fire in the pub.
