The mayor of Ripley plaiced himself behind the counter to serve customers at a popular fish and chip shop as part of a charity fundraiser.

Councillor Roland Emmas-Williams provided hungry customers with tasty treats at the SeaFish restaurant in Ripley.

The owners of the restaurant donated all the evenings’ take-away sales to Ripley Hospital League of Friends.

The charity aims to relieve patients of Ripley Hospital who are sick, convalescent, disabled, handicapped, infirm or in need of financial assistance and generally to support the charitable work of the hospital.

Coun Emmas-Williams said he would like to thank all the customers for their donations.

Sales coordinator Chloe Goodrum said: “The mayor made a real impact helping serve customers in aid of charity. He has a booked a second event on Monday April 20, where he is hoping to fry up a storm behind the range.”
