Beloved Ky butcher calls it a day

Butcher takes break after 41 years.

Graham Warren is taking a break from his Allan Street Butchery after 41 years to spend time with his wife and grandkids.

A butcher who spent more than four decades in the same job said he had ‘‘loved every minute of it’’.

Graham Warren will hang up his knife and steel this Saturday to take a well-earned break after 41 years in the business.

But it’s not goodbye forever.

‘‘I’m out of this shop, but I’m not leaving the district. I’ll be back,’’ the popular Kyabram butcher said.

Mr Warren was 17 when in 1973 he started work as an apprentice for Ky Meats under legendary butchers Allan Needs and Bill McDonald.

He wanted to be a pastry cook, but when Treloars Bakery had nothing going, they suggested he try the local butcher.

There’s nowhere else he’d rather have been.
