Higginsons are 'North of Englands Best'
A Cumbrian butcher has been named the best in the North of England after proving itself a cut above the rest in the prestigious Butcher's Shop of the Year Awards 2013.
Higginsons of Grange, of Grange Over Sands impressed the judges from awards organiser Meat Trades Journal with the transformation of its shop from traditional to modern, as it scooped top prize in the North region at the annual awards ceremony in London on November 14th.
The judges said "This is a superb, well-rounded, business. An impressive and substantial takeaway service makes use of an otherwise redundant part of the building while the modern backroom preparation area is well organised and cavernous. The main shop has a cosiness and warmth about it that makes shopping a pleasure."
After accepting the award at the spectacular Plaisterers' Hall in London, Owners, Stuart and Pauline Higginson, said they were "Delighted to be announced as the winners of the 2013 North of England Butcher's Shop of the Year Awards, particularly as this year marks our 30th year in Business. Winning the award is a wonderful tribute to all the hard work that goes into the business by our staff and is a fantastic way to celebrate the occasion".
