Ridgeway care home's five-star hygiene rating

a TEAM of catering staff from a nursing home in Belper have been awarded a five-star hygiene rating.

Carl Fox, Claire Brown and Lyn Wilkinson of Ridgeway Nursing Home scored the top mark in Amber Valley Borough Council’s food hygiene scheme.

The Crich Lane home is run by Derbyshire County Council and has 37 residents.

It is the second time in a row they have achieved a ‘Very Good’ rating.

The home’s manager, Paul Spencer, said: “I praise the catering team for excellent meals, which are freshly prepared in the home. Well done for the five-star award!”

The scheme seeks to allow consumers to know about the places they eat at and from where they buy food and to encourage businesses to improve hygiene standards.
