A Chorley chippy is ‘frying high’ in its bid to ‘batter’ the opposition to win a national food award.

Skippers in Talbot Row, Euxton, is currently lying sixth out of 600 fish and chip shops vying to win a Perfect Portion award during National Chip Week later this month.

Owner Andrew Crook said he was overjoyed by the support of his customers and is urging the people of Chorley to support him by voting for Skippers at the website www.lovechips.co.uk
