More than 200 people claimed sausages, stewing steak or minced beef from Bennett Butchers following a sizzling offer in the Spalding Guardian to celebrate the end of roadworks on Winsover Road.
“Some were regular customers, some were new faces,” said Bennett’s boss Andrew Parsons. “I am very happy with it.”
Andrew said his trade dipped during the ten weeks of roadworks by Anglian Water, who were repairing a collapsed sewer, and his pre-Christmas trade was down by 20 per cent.
He hopes to see more faces now Winsover Road is open.
• The offer, which is now closed, was available only with a coupon printed in the Spalding Guardian.
