National Fish & Chip Day
On Friday 1st June people across the country are celebrating their love of fish and chips as they come together on National Fish & Chip Day!
Lovers of fish and chips in Milton Keynes are in for a treat as we team up with Napoli Fish Bar in New Bradwell to mark the occasion.
On this week’s Free Food Friday we are giving away 5 prizes of Fish and Chips for 4 people. Usual rules apply.
Napoli Fish Bar is celebrating their 40th anniversary next year and is known for some of the best fish and chips in MK. The owner, Lucci is asking customers to come together to celebrate Britain’s best-loved fast food by tucking in to a portion of sizzling fish and chips regardless of if they win or not. Lucci says, “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 with salt, vinegar, sauce, mushy peas or a pickled egg! If you can’t make it to New Bradwell, make sure the only takeway you have is Fish and Chips from your local chippy this Friday."
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. Incoming NEODA President, Ryan Baker, comments, “National Fish & Chip Day has become more popular each year and in 2018 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.”
