A Teesdale village hall has been awarded the maximum score for its food hygiene.

Hutton Magna village hall was inspected by Durham County Council's environment, health and consumer protection team late last year. Subsequently the highest rating of five stars has been awarded.

Joanne Waller, head of environment, health and consumer protection at Durham County Council, said: “We can confirm that Hutton Magna Village Hall has received the highest possible food hygiene rating which indicates that their food hygiene standards are very good.”
