King's Manor Care Home has revealed the news that its two head chefs have both been shortlisted as finalists in two separate awards.

Michelle Stroud, who took part in the Food and Families festival locally by demonstrating how they catered for different people's needs at the home, has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Care Home Chef award at the Great British Care Awards.

She plans to go forward to the next stage on October 14 in Bristol.

Cathryn McCollum, who is the second chef at the home, took part in the Maria Mallaband Care Group Chef of the Year competition and has been shortlisted after cooking a three-course meal fore regional judge, Ottery's mayor and members of Honiton Chamber of Commerce.
