Raymond Fusco – Young Fish Frier of the Year 2009
Raymond has continued a family tradition by winning the Young Fish Frier of the Year 2009 by following in the footsteps of his older brother Stuart who won the award in 2004.
20 year old Raymond, who helps run one of the family businesses at Royal Fisheries in Baxtergate, was among hundreds of other hopefuls who entered the competition for the coveted title of Young Fish Frier of the Year. After several elimination rounds, Raymond was chosen to go to the final in London along with four others and spent two days with the sponsors which finally culminated in the presentation ceremony which was held at the Plaza Park Riverbank Hotel and hosted by TV Chef Simon Rimmer.
Mum Carol, who is director of Fusco Ltd. said “I am naturally very proud of Raymond clinching this title, he is a very hard working and conscientious individual who strives for perfection in everything he does”.
