We always knew they were brilliant but now we have the proof! Our amazing Catering Manager Sue and her hardworking team have been awarded first place in 'Caring UKs' annual awards ceremony, for 'The Best Catering Team in the UK'. We are pleased as punch for Sue and her team who are tirelessly dedicated to providing us with delicious, healthy, home-cooked and fresh meals. Thats not even mentioning all the scrumptious cakes and biscuits, alongside all those special menus, wonderful parties, birthdays and events catered for. The cake stall at our annual coffee morning alone makes your mouth water! Although Sue and the team were up against tough competition, the judges said they were in no doubt about the winner and mentioned 'real home cooking' with 'nothing from a packet' and how much the residents have a say in planning menu choices. We've included pictures of the awards ceremony as well as Sue and her team being congratulated by us all on their acheivements - well done Sue and the team, you really are the heart of the home!
Sue and the team receiving a big Thank-you and congratulations from all of us.
All dressed up for the award ceremony, with entertainment before the awards begin!
Back in the comfort of their kitchen, with just a few examples of why they are now a national award winning catering team - worth all that hard work and dedication!
Christmas season is offically here. We've held our annual 'Glitter and Glue' making Christmas cards, gift tags and some very glittery fingers along the way! All topped off with the first home-made mince pies of the season - who could ask for more?
We have lots going on at The Old Vicarage and we love to share all our news with friends and families.
