High Peak MP Ruth George called in at Glossop butchers, Mettricks, recently to congratulate is award winning apprentice, Johnny Seville.
Ruth said: “It was great to meet Jonny at the Mettricks shop in Glossop to congratulate him, as well as John and all the team, personally.
“It was also good to catch up on measures to support small abattoirs to make sure our farm animals don’t have to travel long distances and we know exactly where our local meat is from.
“I am doing what I can to help support this in Parliament too.”
Johnny was presented with the prestigious Abattoir Apprentice of the Year award by Princess Anne at a ceremony in London earlier this year. The annual competition is organised by the Institute of Meat and the Worshipful Company of Butchers.
