Special birthday cake kicks off this year’s fish and chip shop competition Published:  02 June, 2005

TOMORROW Friday the 3rd of June, the battle begins for the top UK fish and chip shop. Brian Turner, CBE, celebrity chef from Ready Steady Cook and restaurateur, will tuck into a giant fish and chips birthday cake with current British champions, Gregg and Caroline Howard from Our Plaice in West Hagley, to launch the 18th National Fish & Chip Shop of the Year Competition.

Hundreds of fish and chip shops around the country will now batter it out to win the coveted award. The public has just three weeks to vote for their favourite chippy! More than 261 million fish and chip meals are sold in the UK every year making it Britain’s favourite take-away. Since winning the title of UK’s best

chippy earlier this year, Gregg and Caroline Howard from Our Plaice have seen their business soar by 30 per cent. The event will take place at 10.00 am at Our Plaice, 131 Worcester Road, West Hagley, West Midlands.
