No frying tonight, but not all of chippy’s neighbours crying
A MAN living near to the Kingfisher chip shop has expressed his dismay at its closure.
Peter Piriou has lived at L’Eree since the 1970s.
‘We’ve got no breakfast restaurant or chippy now, we’ve got nothing – it’s a shame.’
Mr Piriou said that since the takeaway had started offering breakfast, more people had begun to use it – especially tradesmen passing through the area.
‘Years ago it was a cafe and a chip shop and it would open from eight or nine o’clock in the morning.’
The Kingfisher closed down on 10 October following a letter from Planning Services advising the business of the conditions of a change of use application granted in 2015.
That was given provided public access to the premises began only at 11am and all customers had to have left by 10.15pm.
