The rain doesn’t sound too bad now, does it?

A full week of scorching temperatures across Greater Manchester has resulted in the closure of a number of our favourite fish and chip shops.

Throughout the last week, Greater Manchester has endured blistering conditions, with temperatures reaching highs of 30 degrees celsius.

Yet, while many have been enjoying the unusually warm weather in local parks and beer gardens, our chippies haven’t been faring so well.

Popular restaurants Charlie’s Fish and Chips in Urmston and Chips @ No. 8 in Prestwich had to close their doors this week when temperatures soared in their kitchens.

Chips @ No 8 was named one of the best chippies in the UK in the recent Fry Magazine Awards.

But locals haven’t been able to visit since Tuesday after the kitchen’s vital fan stopped working, meaning the temperature reached a staggering 44 degrees celsius. 

A sign in the window of the Prestwich business, signed off with a smiley face, read: “The kitchen supply fan has chosen today to give up.

“When the temperature in here reached 44 degrees celsius… So did we! Gone for an ice cream.”

Over in Urmston, meanwhile, Charlie’s posted on its Facebook page: “Closed today due to extreme temperatures. Health and safety comes first!

Though fans of the restaurants need not fear because, now that temperatures have cooled somewhat, they are both back open from today. To check their opening times, visit the Chips @ No.8 Facebook page and the Charlie’s Fish & Chips Urmston M41 Facebook page.

While there’s no law for minimum or maximum working temperatures here in the UK, gov guidance suggests a minimum of 16 degrees celsius or 13 degrees celsius if employees are doing physical work.

Greater Manchester chippies are giving away FREE fish and chips this August

Fancy a free chippy tea?

Sarson's UK

Hundreds of chippy teas across Greater Manchester will be reimbursed throughout August as part of a scheme to help small businesses with the cost of living crisis. 

Sarson’s Vinegar has officially launched its #SarsonsFryday campaign, which will see hundreds of dinners be reimbursed for the remaining summer weeks. 

The scheme was launched to extend a helping hands to struggling chippies across both Greater Manchester and the rest of the country amid the ongoing cost of living crisis

To claim their free dinner, all customers will need to do is take a photo of their order and share it onto Twitter or Instagram with the tag @SarsonsUK and hashtag #SarsonsFryday.

To be valid, all entries must ensure they are following the Sarson’s official social media channels to be considered, and must have proof of purchase via a receipt for their meal.

Eastenders actor and chippy tea enthusiast Adam Woodyatt teamed up with the company to make the scheme a reality. He said: “#SarsonsFryday is a fantastic way to reward the loyal customers who keep our fish and chip shops open for business.

“It’s fair to say I know a thing or two about running a fish bar, and I encourage everyone to head to their nearest chippy and get their order in pronto, you never know it might be free!”

Bryan Carroll, Deputy Chief Operating Officer of Sarson’s, added: “The rising cost of living means we’re naturally all looking for ways to cut down our expenses, and sadly, one of the first thing that consumers cut back on is meals out and takeaways, leaving many of our favourite chippies at risk.

“As we enjoy the warmer weather, we wanted to help the nation support their local so we’re making everyone’s favourite day of the week even better with #SarsonsFryday.

“Whether it’s a staycation with friends, seaside visit with the whole family or a quiet Friday night in, we want to make sure Brits can get their fish and chip fix – so this summer, it’s on us!”
