Grantham fish and chip shop Wellies served up dishes of cod and chips for just 99p on Saturday to celebrate Norway Day
The shop served hundreds of 99p portions of Norwegian cod and chips on May 17 as part of a campaign run in partnership with the Norwegian Seafood Council.
The council joined forces with 99 fryers across the UK to offer fish and chip fans the chance to hark back to the golden era of fish and chips and purchase a portion of their favourite takeaway for just 99p on Norway Day. A total of 16 tonnes of cod was gifted to the 99 participating shops, including Wellies, allowing over 40,000 people nationwide to join in a unique fish and chip celebration.
Alison Wells, of Wellies, said: “This really was a fantastic celebration of our favourite dish! We had smiling customers queuing round the corner before we even opened and they were happy to be enjoying the delicious Norwegian cod and chips on offer – it was so popular! Customers, both old and new, were delighted to grab a portion for this tasty price and we are pleased to have brought a little of the Norwegian celebrations to fish and chip fans in Grantham.”
The 99p fish and chips were served by chippies in commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the Norwegian constitution. Six shops in the East Midlands took part.
