Local Dover chippie Castle Take-away has been awarded a Certificate of Appreciation by the White Cliffs Ramblers who run the popular White Cliffs Walking Festival. The Festival which goes from strength to strength was supported by the Town Council with a £500 grant in 2017. The Fish and Chip Walk sees walkers hike the 10 miles from Walmer to Dover with a hearty meal at the end. Former Mayor, Councillor Pam Brivio, who led the bid to secure “Walkers are Welcome” status for Dover, presented the Award to owner Luigi del Duca. Luigi and his team serve up to 30 portions of fish and chips with only a few minutes notice, distribute copies of the Festival Programme and promote the Festival on their Facebook page.

Pam said “Luigi and his staff do a fine job for Dover, and helping on the Fish and Chip Walk illustrates one of the main aims of Walkers are Welcome – a business demonstrating how Dover welcomes walkers”

This year’s festival takes place from 23-29 August with Friday 24th August earmarked for the 2018 Fish and Chip walk – put it in your diary now!
