Last Friday saw the UK celebrate National Fish and Chip Day for the sixth time in the holiday’s history.

The event is run by The National Edible Oil Distributors’ Association (NEODA), a non-profit organisation established in 1947.

Chippys around the UK decorated their shops with bunting and balloons with staff being given official T-shirts.

To celebrate the event Marlow’s Mayor Richard Scott made a trip to the popular Oyster’s Fish and Chips in Little Marlow.

He was also joined by Marlow Bottom councillors Jason Batten and Richard Moss and to celebrate the day the chippy handed out fish and chips to local residents passing by.

On their website, NEODA say: “National Fish and Chip Day is an awareness day for the consumer.

“This means it embraces all formats of the dish not just fish and chips from the local chippy.

“We try to encompass everyone involved in creating this iconic British dish from fish and chip shops, pub chains, restaurants, retailers to the fishermen and farmers who provide the sustainable and natural ingredients needed to create this nutritionally-balanced family favourite.”
