A FRINTON care home has clinched an award after being given a top rating.

Mid Meadows care home was rated fifth out of more than 1,800 facilities in the east of England by a top industry website.

The site – carehome.co.uk – took the ratings and comments of residents and their families at care homes across the region to put together their ratings.

They handed Frinton staff an award for their impressive placing.

Mid Meadows manager Beverley Barnes said: “We are all so pleased to be recognised for this award.

“Without the dedication and hard work from all of our staff this would not have been possible.”
