ENJOY a free portion of fish and chips to celebrate a Weymouth chippy being crowned the nation’s favourite.

Staff at Alf’s Fish and Chips on Lynch Lane will be giving away free fish and chips to the value of £500 on Tuesday, September 18 from 5pm.

Alf’s won the title of Britain’s Favourite Family Chippy 2012, beating off stiff competition to claim the prize.

The awards are hosted by Ben Shaws, the nostalgic soft drinks brand, which runs the competition annually to find outstanding family-run chip shops across Britain that truly make a difference in their communities.

Alf’s was lauded for its work raising money for hospitals and providing food vouchers to various schools and charities.
