The standard of catering at a South Ayrshire care home has been recognised with a national award for hygiene. Hillcrest in Girvan has landed a coveted Eat Safe Award, for going above and beyond the legal requirements.
The Food Standards Scotland's Eat Safe Awards recognise and promote excellence in catering establishments beyond those required by law.
Hillcrest joins 24 schools in South Ayrshire which have also been credited with Eat Safe awards.
Councillor Ian Cochrane, South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio Holder for Environment said, "With excellent care enjoyed by all the residents at Hillcrest it comes as no surprise that first-class food is also a factor that complements their daily routines.
"I'd like to thank staff for their ongoing dedication for the elderly people we support, with healthy, nutritious meals helping them to stay active members of our community."
