Hospitality Plus Cater for S.T.A.R Awards

Our Hospitality Plus service had the amazing opportunity to host a delicious afternoon tea for the first London Borough of Havering S.T.A.R Awards at Langton’s as a Special Thanks & Recognition for all staff that work within the council back in November.

“Hospitality Plus provided a lovely afternoon tea for the S.T.A.R. Colleague Awards at Havering Council. Presented traditionally on vintage crockery and three-tiered cake stands, the afternoon tea itself offers a good range of delicious food for a very reasonable price.” Michelle Giordmain- HR

In addition, as a service we are also proud that we and members of our team were also up for awards, winning the following:

Outstanding Customer Service Award- Emma Tuvey, Kitchen Supervisor, Catering & Traded Services – St Joseph’s School Kitchen

The winner of this category not only received a nomination from a colleague, but also a Head Teachers’ endorsement and a thank you letter from a parent. She bought new and fresh ideas, along with better ways of working to help improve the current offer. She has revolutionised meal times at school. Rather than being put off by the extra work for children with special dietary requirements, and to a degree, the responsibility, she fully embraced the challenge and has proven to be instrumental in really making this whole experience the success it is today. With a parent saying “It was the first time in 6 years I had trusted anyone else to prepare my daughter’s meals!”

Innovation, Enterprise & Commercial Award- HES Catering – Veggie Run

The winner of this category created an overarching healthy living campaign and educational App aimed at Havering pupils aged 4-11 years of age. The App taught children to learn to dodge unhealthy foods and win tangible sporty rewards by choosing fruit and vegetables. Generating over £400,000 increased sales in catered lunches and sustained use of the App, thousands of pupils have directly benefited from having increased access to sporting activity.

Well done to all the winners and runner ups, we hope you thoroughly enjoyed your afternoon.
