Proto Restaurant Group has always led the way in Worthing, whether it be with their innovative advertising campaigns, their top-quality food or their excellent customer service, but this September, they are leading the field of Worthing Businesses in a sign of respect and appreciation to the British Armed Forces.
You may not be aware of it, but there is a nationwide scheme in place to recognise members of the armed services for the sacrifices they make for us. This scheme is called ‘Heroes Welcome‘ and it has come to Worthing thanks to Sharon Clarke, Worthing Town Centre Manager and Tim Loughton MP. Proto Restaurant Groups, The Fish Factory and Food restaurants are the first restaurants in Worthing to sign up for the scheme.
More than 50 towns and cities have already signed up to the scheme and Sharon Clarke – Worthing Town Centre Manager – say’s it’s about time Worthing got involved:
“Sunny Worthing always offers a warm welcome but this scheme helps businesses to show their appreciation to members of the armed services and the sacrifices they make for us.”
Andy Sparsis was presented with his Heroes Welcome stickers – which will be displayed in the windows of Food and The Fish Factory – on the 16th September with Tim Loughton MP, Mayor Ann Barlow and Councillor Tom Wye present to officially launch the scheme in Worthing and congratulate Andy on leading the way in Worthing.
Upon receiving his sticker for both restaurants, Proto owner Andy Sparsis had the following to say about the armed forces:
“Having lived in many countries around the world, sometimes we the British public, forget how safe we are in the UK and we forget to whom we owe this complacency too.”
The Heroes Welcome doesn’t stop at current service personnel, the welcome extends to ex-service personnel, their families and the families of those whose lives have been lost in service. Proto Restaurant Group would like to extend an open invitation to all that fall under the Heroes Welcome to come and visit Food in New Street (01903 227780) and The Fish Factory in Brighton Road (01903 207123).
