AUCKLEY Friery is dreaming big as it hopes to win Britain’s Favourite Family Chippy Award 2012.

The family-run chip shop in Auckley, Doncaster, which is owned by David Nicolaou and his father Theodosis, has entered the prestigious contest which is run by drinks brand Ben Shaws.

David said: “We have been serving fish and chips to the good people of Auckley and beyond for the past eight years.

“It is a great honour and pleasure to be a permanent fixture within the community – long may it continue!”

The winning chip shop, which will be announced during September, will receive the Favourite Family Chippy trophy, a £500 donation, and a night away for the family who runs it – including dinner at a renowned fish restaurant.

Chip shops wanting to enter the competition can do so by logging on to http://www.facebook.com/favouritefamilychippy for a form before Monday, July 16.
