Popular Fish and Chip Fridays to increase

In November 2022 we launched our first Fish and Chip Friday, which we have continued to run at the hall once a month. 

As it has proved to be such a popular event, we are pleased to announce that we will now run it fortnightly.

From Friday 2 February, Fish and Chip Fridays will be run on the first and the third Friday of every month. On the first Friday we will offer bingo, and on the third Friday we will run a different game or activity, chosen by our volunteers.

Fish and Chip Fridays was the original idea of one of our volunteers, Bill Mather, whose father, Roy, always loved to have fish and chips on a Friday.

Thanks to the efforts of our staff and a number of our lovely volunteers, and of course with the support of all our customers, the event has grown to become a warm, fun and friendly occasion to look forward to.

Here’s what some of our customers have to say about it:

“Since my husband died last year, I thought my life was falling apart but since Bill invited me to be part of the Fish and Chip gang, it gives me a chance to get out and meet some other people who are in a similar boat”.

“I absolutely love coming to Fish and Chips, and having a natter and a game of bingo with everyone, it’s always something to look forward to”.

Our Fish and Chip Fridays have changed over time, but it is always a place to come and have a hot meal, a cuppa, and enjoy good company. We charge £5 per person for food, unlimited drinks and games.

If you would like to come along and experience it for yourself, it is important to book your place beforehand, as spaces are limited.

Forthcoming dates for Fish and Chip Fridays are:

February 2, February 16, March 1 and March 15,  from 1pm to 3pm
