Chef Catering for Residents Needs at Ilkeston

John Williams is 'Super Chef' at Canal Vue and believes firmly that home-made is best and I'm sure if you visit us you will agree!



When I called into Canal Vue, Beef Stew and Dumplings were just being served up to the residents, accompanied by fresh veg chopped and steamed just that morning. John knows his veg. too, having run a wholesale fruit and veg business for a number of years - so unafraid of an early start also.


Residents are enjoying the range of dishes John can create and are especially fond of his strawberry cheesecake (home-made too, who could resist!)


One visitor remarked, 'this looks much better than the food i ate out last night at a local venue'




John trained at Clarendon College Nottingham when he was 16, and therefore has a good few years of catering experience, having worked at Nottinghams clubs and restaurants.


He is now ready for a 'quieter' time and enjoys the welcome homely atmosphere at Canal Vue and working with the residents nutritional needs.

Beyond the Call of Duty at Park House

 Eastgate Staff are well known for their dressing-up and for going the extra mile, well these two staff at Park House certainly fulfilled both these criteria. Carers Brenda Hill and Maureen Slater decided to do more than a 'fancy jumper' and give our residents a treat and probably a laugh too as they came to work in their elves costumes.

Brenda and Maureen are really good elves, as they look after the residents on a daily basis and over the holiday period too.
