People have also been asked to keep their distance when queuing with only two customers allowed in the shop at one time.

Manager Nichole Foster, pictured, highlighted the importance of supporting local businesses.

She said: “We think it is very important that we still provide this service as a lot of our regular customers are elderly and classed as vulnerable.

“By offering a delivery service they are still getting their weekly fix of fish and chips which is keeping them happy. We have also been providing the local care home (Golborne house) with chips for the residents every week as a little treat from us to keep their spirits up as we understand this is a very difficult time for them.

“We’ve had great feedback from this.
