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…

Reflections and Blessings

Good afternoon to all of my lovely readers. I’ve been very quiet lately on the blogging front, and as most of my readers are friends of mine, both on social media and “in person”, then you are probably aware of why. I lost my beloved grandma Winnie on August Bank Holiday Monday, the day after…

Man and Boy

Good evening my lovely readers. I’ve been planning on writing this blog for a long time, even before the statue was unveiled. I knew it would be an emotive memorial, but not as much as I imagined. At last year’s FishStock festival, the makers of the statue were doing last minute fundraising so they could…

Fabulous Fishy Fun At FishStock 2017

Good evening buoys and gulls. Welcome to my blog for this year’s FishStock festival 2017. I look forward to this festival so much, not only because it raises so much money for The Fishermens Mission, but also it’s held in Brixham, Devon. Brixham is almost like a second home and I know a lot of…

Women In Seafood

  Good afternoon buoys and gulls. I’ve felt inspired to write this next blog. I follow quite a lot of seafood authority sites on social media, and through that I’ve become friends with women who work in the seafood sector. There are some ladies who I am friends with whom I’ve not even met yet….

British Fish Craft Championships Billingsgate 2017

  Good afternoon my lovely readers of my Girlyfishmonger blog. It’s come a little later than I anticipated it to be, as my beloved grandma passed away on the Monday morning. It’s been a little difficult to write it, but I know she would want me to carry on and be proud of what I…

What It Meant To Me Winning The Seafish Industry Award 2016

  2 weeks today and fishmongers both independent and retail will be congratulating each other on another year well done. I don’t even think about the word “commiserate”. To get to that point of competing in the championships is a momentous step and if you come away with a trophy, Crystal ware or any other…

The Journey Of The Girlyfishmonger

  I have to start this blog off by saying that my fishmonger in training anniversary seems to be more significant with each year that passes. By the time the anniversary of my starting my fishmonger journey comes around, I seem to achieve more, experience more and  have met the most amazing people. A brief…

The Royal Welsh Show and Living The Girlyfishmonger Dream

  It’s very fair to say that the past 2 months have been incredible, and beyond anything I could ever imagine. It’s been exhausting and extremely hard work, but at the same time I wouldn’t have traded it for anything else. The last agricultural show was The Royal Welsh Show held at the showgrounds in…
