Chip off the old block a winner for fast food operator

A chip van has come up with a simple but ingenious way to enable it to serve customers while maintaining social distancing. 


The Chip Cart, which has operated in Diss, Norfolk for 99 years, has returned to action after the Covid-19 put Britain into lockdown with a clever idea that could be copied around the world.

All you need is a basket or two, a plank of wood and some fishing line. 

Locals have been impressed with the ‘pulley system’.

Simon Reeve, owner of the cart, told the Eastern Daily Press newspaper: “I had a nice picnic table at the front which I thought would be good for complying with the two-metre rule, but I didn’t know how to get the chips to the table.

“So, then I thought if I had a little slide a basket would slide nicely to the table and I wouldn’t have to keep bending down.

“It’s a wooden slide with a plastic covering along with a piece of fishing line and a couple of baskets and so far, it’s been working really well.

“A lot of people love it. It tickles people and gives them a bit of a laugh.”

The fish and chip van was originally a horse-drawn cart.
