WEARSIDERS are being urged to put their top fish and chip shop in first place.
Now in its third year, Britain’s Favourite Family Chippy Award celebrates all the family-run chip shops across the UK.
Launched by nostalgic soft drinks brand Ben Shaws, the awards are backed by industry specialists including Fry Monthly and the Federation of Fish Friers.
The contest, which is open to every family-run chip shop in Britain, will be held through Facebook – www.facebook.com/favouritefamilychippy – where applicants can enter until July 16.
Sundeep Gill, of Ben Shaws, said: “Fish and chips are a cherished part of British heritage.
“They’ve graced the family table for over 100 years and to this day, the family chip shop still plays an equally important role within local communities.”
