Awards triumphs for UK’s most northerly chippy
Frankie’s Fish & Chips in Shetland has netted several new awards for the quality of its food and commitment of its staff.
The eatery, the country’s most northerly chippy, won top spot for training and skills development in the Highlands & Islands Tourism Awards last month. It was also highly commended in the Best Eatery category in the Highlands & Islands Food & Drinks Awards.
Meanwhile staff member Carlyn Kearney, already the Drywite National Young Fish Frier of the Year 2013, was a winner of the Young Shining Star Award at the Highlands & Islands Food & Drinks Awards.
ALL SMILES: CARLYN WITH HER AWARD
Frankie’s manager John Gold said: “It’s great to win national recognition for the very high standards the staff here at Frankie’s work really hard to maintain.”
Frankie’s recently donated £3,350 to the Fishermen’s Mission following a charity cycle event, and is taking part in the National Federation of Fish Friers’ centenary celebrations on 11th November as one of 100 fish and chip shops around the UK offering 100 customers 100 portions for 100 pence, with proceeds going to the Mission.
Frankie’s also donated £500 to local mental health charity Mind Your Head from the cycle event and raised £600 towards an STV appeal to combat child poverty in Scotland.
