Chip chip hooray: celebrating our 50th birthday

We’re celebrating a pretty major milestone this year.

It’s our 50th birthday.

Before you say it, we know, we look good for our age. Thank you very much.

We want to celebrate the big 5-0 with all of you. So, we’re heading to Manchester, Bristol, and London to give out free portions of fish and chips with our friends at The Frying Squad.

“What’s the catch?”

No catch, other than the fish itself, obviously.

All you need to do is turn up to one of the locations below, grab a voucher, then get your free lunch from The Frying Squad.

As with any freebie, make sure you get there quickly, as it’s first come first served and numbers are limited.

The three lucky plaices (sorry) serving up The Frying Squad’s tasty grub are:

Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester on 21 September, from 11am – 3pm.

Cabot Circus, Bristol on 22 September, from 11am – 3pm.

Cardinal Place, London on 24 September, from 11am – 3pm.

“Sounds great… but why fish and chips?”

Other than because it’s delicious?

Well, 50 years ago when we first started, our office was actually in a fish and chip shop.

There’s a joke about our cover being ‘cheap as chips’ in there somewhere…

Can’t make it? Don’t worry, we’ve got a competition for you.

We want everyone to join in with the celebrations. So, we have a competition for anyone that can’t make it on the day.

50 lucky winners will win a £50 Deliveroo voucher, so they can enjoy their preferred dish from home. Fish and chips is highly recommended, but you do you.

To enter, head over to our pinned post on Twitter (@GreenFlagUK) or on Facebook and tell us which three cities we’ll be visiting on our birthday tour with The Frying Squad. You can see all the T&Cs (and a bunch of other letters) below.

Right, we’re going to go get our party hats sorted. We’ll see you in Manchester, Bristol, and London!
