A TALENTED chef at Stocks Hall Mawdesley Nursing and Residential home has won the Care Home Cook/Chef National Award at the recent Great British Care Awards in Birmingham.

“He has got to know all the ladies and gents on an individual basis and will always go above and beyond to make sure they are enjoying their mealtimes.
“We are all very proud of our second chef Lian -not only did he win the Regional Award earlier this year, but this weekend he has won the National Award too!
“Lian has completed our kitchen team and has now shown how far a person can go with the right attitude in life.
“Congratulations, Lian! We are so proud of all your achievements.”
