A NEW fish and chip shop is to open in Hereford next week.

Edwards Plaice will open on Grandstand Road, near Highmore Street, on Monday and the Mayor of Hereford, Councillor Charles Nicholls, will cut the ribbon at around 11.30am.

It will be run by a local family and customers will be able to either eat in or takeaway.

Monday's opening event in Westfields will also include entertainment from magician, Kiegan Vallely, performances from Lorna Damico of Endless Entertainment and live music from Robbie and the Ripples.
