Two award-winning young friers are in Singapore this week to work in one of two shops run by Smiths.

Carlyn Kearny from Frankies in Brae, Shetlands, and Leigh Foster from Pantrini^s in Whitley Bay have packed their bags and can^t wait to start work in the Far East.

Leigh won the prize after being named the 2014 Drywite Young Fish Frier of the Year and immediately asked Carlyn to accompany her - she couldn^t refuse!

The lucky pair will be in Singapore for 10 days. Carlyn said, "We know each other through the Young Friers group and Leigh came to Shetland last year to see Frankie’s and the fantastic local fishing industry. We’re really excited about the trip, although we don’t really know what to expect. It will be a great experience. I’m sure we’ll learn a huge amount.”
