Local firms can take part in Level 2 and Level 3 certificates in Catering at workshops held at SHDC's offices in Spalding, SKDC's offices in Grantham and Stamford Arts Centre.

By law, all food handlers must receive adequate supervision, instruction and/or training in food hygiene.

"I would urge any firms that haven't already taken part in the courses to do so."

SHDC is a registered training centre for the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health and is providing the training on behalf of SKDC.
