[edit] Famous Occupants

The village of Binstead is the birthplace of the legendary Jay Binstead, who shot to fame two years ago following his report on the antics of Andrew Cottham (see 'Buffoon'), "The Binstead Report," which reportedly increased bar productivity by 0.4% and lead to record low pre-tax annual losses of £67,853.44. His lesser-known but equally impressive early career achievements culminated in Jay been awarded the "Blockbuster Video Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Confectionary Sales Award" after his strategic marketing alterations in the Diss branch of the entertainment chain led to a 200% increase in Skittles sales, as well as steady improvement in the notoriously difficult Butterkist Popcorn sales field.
