The Butcher Cooks Dinner

The main ingredients in the meat served at Alan's butchery, he is says, is quality and service: and it must be true enough since the business has been around for ten years. SkillsOne chats to Alan Waldon and his apprentice Zac Wall about their butchery and what makes them the best in the area, what makes Zac Apprentice of the Year and why Zac reckons Eastern Road Quality Meats is better than his dad's butchery!
