Gorleston’s Fleetwood Butchers came away with two gold awards for their sausages in a major competition this month.
Fleetwoods competed in the 20th national Robin Hood Sausage Championships for small butchers in Nottinghamshire.
They won their awards for their Old English sausage, made with free-range breed Scots field pork, red onion and a hint of garlic and their Duck al Orange sausage made with Greshingham Duck, orange marmalade, ginger and star anise.
Points were awarded for weight, size, colour – and most importantly, taste.
Fleetwood’s owner, Mark Allen was delighted with the success – the first time they have entered a show. He has worked for the High Street independents for 35 years, buying the business off John Fleetwood when he retired.
