I had another visit to Riley’s fish and chip shop to see the lovely Jean and her son Stephen. Had a lovely time there taking photos although my flash gun had run out of batteries (must remember to pop some in my bag for spares – so disorganised) so the lighting is not perfect.
The more I visit them the more I get to know them and the more I like them. Why, because they’re lovely people and what they’re doing is fantastic. Jean has worked in fish and chip shops for a lot of years and this is the first one they’ve owned.
And its a fab little place. These are the places we should be supporting, our local businessess. These places hold communities together. They are a lifeline to some people. Just by popping out for a bag of chips you get to talk to someone, chat to your locals, talk to the owners, talk to the customers. Hear the local gossip, what’s going on in the village.
I popped in a few days ago, not to take photos, but as a customer. And how nice it was to chat to Jean and Stephen. Very welcoming. And of course the fish and chips was reet good too.
I look forward to going back again, with a working flashgun, to get more pictures. And to finding our more about them, and the people of Blackhall.
