Part Seven of my Kelvedon photographer journey through Kelvedon High Street, and still safely isolating at home. My Kelvedon High Street Hero today is our favourite chippy, Kelvedon King.
Like all of our High Street Hero's, Kelvedon King is thinking of ways to help the community and also stay afloat. Yesterday saw their doors open between hours of 4pm to 9pm to offer their customers some tasty food with the new option of delivery. I spoke to the owner of Kelvedon King the other day who told me, "we've been receiving a lot of calls everyday since we closed and I feel like I want to help our village because I know how it feels to be home for... how many days now? and nowhere to get food." So true... with people finding it difficult to get food, it's really important, especially for those who struggle to cook, to be able to access cooked food. Erol went on to tell me that when he first started in Kelvedon, people supported him, and how he feels it's his turn to help and serve them.
Most of us want to be able to offer help right now and it's the people and services like Erol and Kelvedon King that, if they are able to, put themselves forward and take a risk.
Well done Kelvedon King! Good luck and see you soon :)
