In 1950s and 60s Bermondsey, the fish-and-chip shop was at the centre of the community. And at the heart of the chippy itself was "Hooray" Hilda Kemp, a spirited matriarch who dispensed fish suppers and an abundance of sympathy. Growing up in the slums of south-east London, Hilda could spot when a customer was in need and would sneak them an extra big portion of chips, on the house. As Hilda works in the chippy six days a week - cutting the potatoes and frying the fish, yesterday's rag becoming today's dinner plate - she hears all the gossip from the close-knit community. With a cast of colourful characters, Hilda's story is one of grit, romance, nostalgia and British endurance.
