My Heroes and Inspirations

I am very aware of the fact I have written a blog for a couple of weeks, and it isn’t due to the fact I haven’t got anything to write about. In fact, it’s quite the opposite, I have a lot I wish to write about, just short on the time. From a record sales…

The Fishing Industry : From The Catch To Your Plate

The whole industry is a powerfully emotive issue. From the houses of parliament, to newspapers and television to social media, individual fishermen to whole communities are fighting for their rights and fair deal from Brexit. I’l state here and now at the outset, that I don’t pretend to be knowledgeable on the whole issue, because…

SeaFish Careers Event 2018

  First of all, a massive thank you to those of you who have read my previous blog regarding the trip to Great Grimsby and my unofficially adopting the town. It does mean a lot to me when I receive lovely comments. This blog is all about the reason myself and Nicola were there in…

The Fishing Industry, Not Just An Industry But A Community

  If you follow me on any form of social media, you’ll know my 1st holiday of 2018 has been a packed one. Each time I visit Grimsby, it’s harder to return to Stoke On Trent. I love my family, friends and home town very much, but with Grimsby and Cleethorpes, there is such a…

The Adventures Of The Girlyfishmonger

Hello to my lovely readers of my blogging adventures. I fear it’s been a little while since I published a blog. It’s not due to the fact that I’ve had nothing to write about, in fact it’s the other way around. I’ve almost TOO much to write about. In a way that is a good…

My 3 Year Girlyfishmonger Anniversary

Hi to all my lovely readers. This blog is more of a personal thoughts, feelings and aspirations than my other blogs. I’ve been “trawling” through my literally 100s photos to do with my fishy journey, actually just over a 1,000 photos! This year has, for want of a better phrase, been a complete rollercoaster. Massive…

Why Walk From Stoke On Trent to Grimsby For The Fishermens Mission?

At 9am, Wednesday 18th April 2018, myself and best friend and fellow salmon slayer, Nicola Rowbotham will start the walk from my Fish Counter…

MSC : What It Means, Why Is It Important and Why Is It Beneficial?

What Makes Great Grimsby Great?

  I have alluded to my love of Grimsby in previous blogs, along with other fishing towns, especially Brixham and Peterhead. (Please don’t get jealous Newlyn, I’ll visit you one day, I promise x) However, I’m finding I spend more time heading to Grimsby or at least planning. It could be that it’s the closest…

The Humber Seafood Summit 2017

        The Humber Seafood Fayre and Summit-Grimsby 2017 It may surprise some of my readers to know that I write my blogs on my smart phone. This is mainly due to the fact that I write my blogs whilst I’m on my lunch break at work. I never use predictive text as…
