We couldnโ€™t help but notice that our pollock sometimes fries in the shape of a two fingered salute.
If youโ€™re lucky you may find that your meal says #pollockstoputin too.

Pollock (caught in Alaska and Europe) and chips are ยฃ7.45 on our takeaway.

In a world where all we can do is show our support and that we care. And in a world where Russia owns half of Europeโ€™s white fishing grounds (including cod and haddock) what can we do?

We can say โ€œpollocks to Putinโ€. VC Jones are stocking pollock (caught in Alaska and Europe) as an ethical alternative. So, if you want to support Ukraine (and your local chippy, because cod has gone up 35% in price due to sanctions ) join us and say #pollockstoputin

Missed the last florist delivery?
Shop run out of Motherโ€™s Day cards?
All is not lost!
Nothing says โ€œthanks Mumโ€ like a battered sausage from VC Jones.

As you may already be aware, our Pay It Forward service supports the guests of The Haven Project, a charity helping the homeless in our community that operates out of St John's Methodist Church on Argyle Road.

The Project is trying to raise awareness and much-needed funds to help them continue supporting people in need in our community and is hosting a Spring Fayre on 9th April.

Come along and see the amazing work that they do (they even lend out refurbished bicycles!)

Ok,
Itโ€™s quite windy out there (thatโ€™s an understatement) and our drivers have already dodged tiles ripped off roofs, a piece of guttering and a flying TV aerial.

So, weโ€™ve decided to close our counter and restaurant at 4.00 and there will be no further deliveries today.

Back open as usual tomorrow

One of the best things about our shop is the customers weโ€™ve been able to build relationships with over the last 60 years.

And weโ€™re looking forward to reopening our restaurant. So, we have decorators in giving it a good spruce up for its 60th birthday.

Which means:

We will be closed from 10th January 2022 - 31st January 2022.

The whole family are looking forward to celebrating our 60th birthday year with you all!

Happy Small Business Saturday!

Our town is full of so many wonderful independent shops and itโ€™s been brilliant watching them decorate their windows this week.

While it may be a bit of a soggy Saturday, itโ€™s a perfect excuse to go into our lovely shops, have a mooch, and buy something different.
