STONEHAVEN’S world-famous takeaway, The Bay Fish & Chips, has undergone a complete revamp in a bid to further enhance its sustainability.

The shop has invested in equipment including shallower sinks to reduce water wastage, new fridge units to eliminate unused space, and a zero emissions fryer with a separate gluten-free section.

The takeaway has also brought in advanced electric pans and new motion-activated lighting to cut down on electricity.

A click and collect service is soon to be available, making The Bay even more accessible for people with wheelchairs and buggies.

The £250,000 refurbishment is the most significant to date for the Aberdeenshire chippie since opening its doors 14 years ago. The business has already previously picked up multiple awards in recognition for its sustainability efforts.

Owner and chef Calum Richardson, pictured left, said: “We’re delighted with the finished result here at The Bay – it’s a fantastic way to kick start 2020.

“Sustainability has always been a key pillar of our culture and it’s what we instil in all of our employees. Not only is the revamp great to look at but the new state of the art equipment is both energy efficient and environmentally friendly which is crucial to the future of the business.

“I’d like to extend a special thanks to local contractor Fotheringham Homes for taking on this project. They’ve done an amazing job.”
