PEOPLE across the country will celebrate their love of fish and chips as they come together on National Fish & Chip Day on Friday.

Fish and chip lovers in Weymouth will be joining the rest of the UK to celebrate again as Fish ’n’ Fritz, mark the occasion by knocking £1 off regular or large fish & chips or 50p off a portion of chips.

In 2018, National Fish & Chip Day was one of the biggest awareness days of the year in the UK with three quarters of the population hearing, seeing or reading something about it.

National Fish & Chip Day is about giving fish and chips the recognition it

deserves and helping to secure its position as the nation’s favourite dish. The event, which will take place on the first Friday in June every year, already has the backing of key players in the industry.

The national event is once again being championed by trade organisation, The National Edible Oil Distributors’ Association, who represent packers and distributors of oils and fats in the UK. NEODA President, Ryan Baker, comments, “National Fish & Chip Day has become more popular each year and in 2019 we want it to be even bigger! It’s a celebration of the stars who work hard to bring Brits their favourite traditional takeaway. We want to bring the whole industry together to celebrate and showcase the great British institution that is Fish and Chips.”

“To help build support in anticipation for the event, we are urging people to start tweeting with the hashtag #NationalFishandChipDay.”

Fish ’n’ Fritz has been serving fresh fish and chips to the local community and visitors to Weymouth for more than 22 years and they’re asking customers to come together to celebrate Britain’s best-loved fast food by tucking in to a portion of their very tasty fish and chips on Friday 7th June, National Fish & Chip Day.

Paul Hay said: “We all agree nothing can beat a portion of steaming fresh white fish fried in hot, crispy batter, served with a pile of lip-smacking chips – the only debate is whether you top it off with salt, vinegar, sauce, mushy peas or a pickled egg!

“So celebrate British fish and chips and join us on National Fish & Chip Day, Friday June 7. We look forward to serving you!”
