Top marks for borough businesses

More premises in Boston borough have achieved top marks for food hygiene.

The council's environmental health officers have inspected the premises and rated them in line with the Food Standard Agency's Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.

The scheme helps consumers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving them information about the hygiene standards in restaurants, takeaways and food shops.

The latest to receive the five-rated accolade are: Korzinka Taste of Europe, 69 Argyle Street; Old Smoke, 98 Carlton Road; Evelyn Ruby Cakes, 7 Lenton Way, Frampton; C. Dunham, 17 London Road; The Old Pottery Tea Room, Main Road; Tates Fish Restaurant, 4 to 6 New Street; Swineshead Pre-School Centre, North End, Swineshead; Little Acorns Day Nursery, Skirbeck Road, and Os Netos, 87 West Street.

Cllr Michael Brookes, Boston Borough Council's portfolio holder for environmental health, said: "It has been good to see so many different businesses in the borough gaining the top food hygiene award, ranging from shops to cafes and restaurants to pubs and schools.

"Despite the variety of businesses the award delivers the same message to the public for all of them - that their customers can have confidence in the care taken by them to abide by the latest high standards of good hygiene. That's good for the customers and good for the businesses which achieve the highest award."
