The Catering Team under chefs Emanuele Ferri and Marek Scigaj won outright the Catering & Nutrition Award.
There has been great excitement and expectation over the last number of weeks following confirmation of the shortlistings and winning the Catering Award. Haven Bay is in existence since 2007. It is a real testament to our staff that we have come so far in such a short period of time. We heartily congratulate the finalists and award winners and all the staff who contribute to the quality care and 'home from home' lifestyle enjoyed by the residents of Haven Bay Care Centre. Well done to all"
