Gloucestershire fishery handed £41,000 by government scheme

Gloucestershire fishery Severn & Wye Smokery has been awarded £41,000 under a government scheme to encourage the sale and consumption of locally-caught seafood.

Severn & Wye, based at Chaxhill near Westbury-on-Severn, has been awarded the money to help its home delivery service.

It is one of 20 projects - 13 of them in the South West - sharing more than £1million as part of the Domestic Seafood Supply Scheme.

Applications were judged by an independent panel of fishing industry, Government and Marine Management Organisation representatives.

Funding was awarded to businesses based across the country who submitted a range of innovative ideas to support their local fishing and food businesses.

The Severn & Wye Smokery has a fish processing plant with the original smoker undergoing a total renovation in 2007.

The Barn at Chaxhill contains a fish market, gift shop, cafe and open-plan restaurant.
