The catering team at Jubilee Court, a retirement community in March, are celebrating after retaining their food hygiene rating of 5 from the Food Standards Agency. 

The rating, which is the highest possible score, reflects the high standards of food safety and hygiene at the retirement service, which is run by Sanctuary Supported Living. 

Jubilee Court provides self-contained apartments for people aged 60 and over, as well as onsite communal facilities, including their Taste restaurant and shared gardens.  

The Taste restaurant team prepare nutritious and delicious lunches and light bites for the residents, using seasonal ingredients.  

Current menu favourites include sausage casserole, chicken curry, and fish and chip Fridays, as well as tasty desserts to accompany every lunchtime special. 

Retirement living housing manager for Jubilee Court, Kim Griffen, said: "We are delighted to receive this recognition for our food hygiene practices. 

“Our team works hard to ensure that residents enjoy a variety of meals that cater to their preferences and dietary needs, while maintaining the highest levels of cleanliness and hygiene. 

“This rating is a testament to their dedication and professionalism." 

She added: "Food is an important part of our service, as it not only provides nourishment, but also a perfect opportunity for our residents to get together and socialise.  

“We are proud to offer a service that supports our residents to live independently and enjoy a good quality of life."
