Walter Smith have carried on with all the same products we have sold for many years and added some of their own, the Supreme Champion Pork Pie proving very popular with customers old and new But 24 December will see, Master Butcher, Patrick Richards, hang up his butcher’s apron for the last time.

Patrick and Gaynor are both looking forward to their retirement but would like to express their thanks to everyone in Albrighton who have been part of their every day working lives these past years. The support and friendship shown has always been appreciated and so very highly valued.

The couple are pleased to hand over the reigns of the shop to Walter Smith Fine Foods.
