Village loses a Butcher

D.J. Gregory Family Butcher
It is always sad when our village loses a shop, it is particularly sad when it is a specialist trade that is going.

DJ Gregory Butchers in the High Street, Milford on Sea will close on the Saturday 25th January 2014. Owned and managed by Dave Gregory for many years, the toll of the recent economic climate and the declined of local butchery trade has persuaded Dave to call it a day as a village butcher.

Dave will not be lost to the village though, as he will continue to operate DJ Mini Buses, providing a service for groups of people who wish to travel around the local area, and of course his bus also becomes the Great Dining Bus throughout the year!

Dave sends his thanks to all of his past customers, and we wish Dave a bright, healthy and happy future.

Thankfully, the village still has another fine local butcher, with Dave Gates at The Butchers Shop in Church Hill, Milford on Sea.

Dave is well known locally for his award-winning sausages and bacon, he also provides local joints of fresh local meat, eggs and a range of chutneys. To add to this Dave also provides the ‘The Butchers Shop Hog Roast’ to private events. For many years Dave has been seen serving his Hog Roast Rolls at village events on the village green. At any event he is always easy to find, as his stall is normally the one with the longest queue!

If you are not a regular customer, why not give Dave a try for your joint this weekend, get your vegetables from Marjorie’s and accompaniments from Holland’s or the Co-op, - after all, all of the village shops are here to provide us with a personal local service, and are key to making Milford on Sea the special village community it is. Let’s show our support and use them as much as we can!
