How long have you worked at Land & Sea?

I have worked alongside the four girls my dad employs for nearly two years now. I work most Saturdays doing both lunchtime shifts and then the evening shift.

What are your responsibilities?

I help out in the mornings, firstly doing the gravy and curry pans, which I taste test to make sure they are up to our award-winning standards! Then it’s off to the potato room I go doing the heavy work, rumbling and chipping ready for the 11:30am opening. I also stock the pop fridge and serve customers.

Serving customers and operating the till.

What’s your least favourite part of the job?

Washing up!

What is it that you like about working at Land & Sea?

I love working with the girls, who are known as the “Chip Shop Gang”. We all work very hard as a team and the atmosphere is buzzing, which the customers love! 

How do you feel about being nominated as an unsung hero?

I’m very proud to be nominated and I love working with my daddy in the chip shop whenever I can, and I really enjoy interacting with the customers.
