Whilst out taking photos for Waterlooville in Bloom, I took the opportunity to pop into the recently re-open Butcher located in the main precinct. As some of you will remember, the prior butcher shut up shop over night and emptied the shop of the fixtures and fittings. All of the shop had been gutted, including compressors for the refrigeration units, and the gears and mechanism for the front awning.
Gary Wright is the owner of this new business. The name of his venture is Wright Choice Family Butcher. Gary is a local chap, he was born in Havant and currently lives in Widley. Gary has had his own butcher shop since age of 19 and he told me that he worked at this shop when he was a teenager for Paul Richards.
Gary buys in and butchers whole carcases, as well as making homemade pies / sausages. The Wright Choice Family Butcher also offers catering via Hog Roast and BBQ Hire.
Amanda and I would like to wish Gary and his staff all the best for the future.
