High street hero

Butcher and appetite columnist George Payne is one of 40 people from small businesses across the UK to feature in a new artwork by pop artist Sir Peter Blake; creator of the iconic Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album sleeve.

The work, dubbed High Street Heroes, was commissioned by American Express. Sir Peter, who worked at a butcher in his youth, says: “Having worked at a local butcher at the age of 13 I have experienced the dedication and hard work that goes into running a small shop. It’s great to support to a campaign that champions small businesses.”
