What makes you truly feel at home?

One thing you should always remember about the housing market is that there is never a single reason for a person to live in a particular home, or an area. Instead, it is usually a lot of different factors that individually might not seem too important, but when you take them together, they add up to a decision that changes your life.


This is why we stay up to date with what is happening in Darlington, and we love to see local people and businesses do well. You might not have too much interest in the Best Chippy in County Durham and Darlington award, but it is the sort of thing that makes some people feel right at home.


Yes, schools and reliable transport options are essential, but sometimes it's knowing you can get a great fish and chips at the end of a tough day or long week that puts a smile on your face.

And the winner is…


We were delighted to hear Cockerton Fisheries, located at 311 Woodland Road in Darlington, came out on top. The process saw people vote for their favourite chip shop, with a list of the top ten being published online. From this, the voting panel spoke with the leading candidates, and we hope the panel tasted meals from each and every potential winner!


That is the sort of judging panel we’d like to find ourselves on!


The Northern Echo spoke with the winner, chip shop owner Sam Todd, who said: “Oh my word that's amazing. Wow. I'm delighted. It's all down to hard work and looking after our customers. And the staff are amazing. We go out of our way for our customers. We have lots of regulars and have a delivery service for elderly people. Since Covid, I have carried on with that. On a Saturday, I have 20 to 30 people that I deliver to and take the food into their house - they just love it. It's all about looking after and doing that extra for our customers - as well as having the best fish and chips."


The delivery service is a great example of why the shop is so highly regarded in the local community. Yes, there are delivery service providers available these days, but they’re most readily used on smartphone devices and apps. It might be that many potential customers don’t have the option to use these apps, or perhaps have no interest in doing so.


The fact that Cockerton Fisheries provides this service is undoubtedly good for business, but it provides an invaluable service. This is the sort of thing that helps a business to stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons.
