Oysters Chippy, Lightwater celebrates the first ever National Fish & Chip Day

OystersFish and chip lovers in Surrey Heath will be joining the rest of the UK to celebrate the first ever National Fish & Chip Day on Friday, June 5th.

Oysters Chippy in Lightwater has been serving fresh fish and chips to the local community since 2010 and they’re asking customers to come together to celebrate Britain’s best-loved fast food by tucking in to a portion of sizzling fish and chips.

Manager Mel Cooper said: “Nothing can beat a dish of steaming fresh white fish fried in hot, crispy batter, served with a pile of lip-smacking salty chips and dashed with tangy vinegar and mushy peas.

“So stand up for British fish and chips and celebrate National Fish & Chip Day on Friday, June 5th by coming down to Oysters and enjoying a good old-fashioned Friday night fish supper.

The National Fish & Chip Day is about giving fish and chips the recognition it deserves and helping to secure its position as the UK’s number one takeaway.

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 being championed by trade organisation, The National Edible Oil Distributors’ Association, who represent packers and distributors of oils and fats in the UK, in a move designed to showcase all the stars who work hard to bring Brits their favourite traditional takeaway, from the fisherman hauling in their fresh catch in all weathers, to the fryers serving their local communities for generations.

NEODA President, Gary Lewis, comments “We want to bring the whole industry together to celebrate and showcase the great British institution that is fish and chips.

“We’ve been eating it for generations. It is part of our tradition and our national identity, and the local chippy is a part of every local community.

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