Staff at The Moat House, a retirement village in Great Dunmow, are celebrating receiving the highest commendation from the local council.
An unannounced visit by an Environmental Health officer saw The Moat House kitchen coming under close scrutiny. The officer looked at all the kitchen processes including food hygiene practices, cleanliness, ventilation, monitoring, recording, staff training and food safety.
Staff were delighted to discover the officer from Uttlesford District Council had awarded them the highest five star food hygiene rating.
“This is further evidence that everything we do is aimed at providing our residents with the very highest standards,” said Village Manager Deborah Stevenson.
The final stages of work are underway on the new 60 bed care home at The Moat House. Residents will be moving into their new home in the summer.
