Scores on the doors revealed

NINE Copeland businesses were visited in November as part of the latest round of food hygiene inspections – with all but one receiving the maximum score.

As part of the Scores on the Doors scheme, Aspava (Cleator Moor), Old School (Holmrook), Black Combe Junior School (Millom), St Bees School, W Hartley Beach Shop (St Bees), The Lighthouse Centre, (Millom), Harbour Youth Project Cafe and Sweet Disposition (both Whitehaven) received the maximum five stars. Reality Drinks, in Whitehaven received three.

Under the system, businesses are assessed for their compliance with hygiene, confidence in food hygiene management and structural compliance. Businesses are then given a rating from one to five stars.

Copeland has 616 eating places with a score of three or above.

The council’s portfolio holder for the environment, Peter Kane, said: “Christmas is a busy time for our local restaurants, cafes and pubs.

“The majority of Copeland food businesses are rated three or above, and the food hygiene rating Scheme makes it easier for everyone to choose places where food hygiene is taken seriously.”

Customers are advised to look out for stickers giving business’ ratings. These should be displayed on a window or door.

Scores of all of the food businesses in Copeland can be found at www.scoresonthedoors.org.uk, and The Whitehaven News carries a monthly report on the latest inspection results.
