THE big FISH is proud to announce that they have achieved No1 status for the Midlands Region in the National Seafish Independent Fish & Chip Shop of the Year 2012.

The News has been recieved with much celebration and relief as they were up against tough opposition.

It’s a 15 year dream come true for owner Marina Angelides who would love to take it one step further and someday win the overall National title.

The UK is divided into 10 regions including Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Midlands region covers areas as far and wide as Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Shropshire. The 10 regional finalists get to go on a study trip to Norway and learn all about the origins of their fish and sustainability.
