A bistro owned and operated by Halton Housing has received an award for outstanding service to young people with disabilities. 

The Orange Tree Bistro, based at Halton Housing’s Barkla Fields Extra Care scheme has received the Kitemark Award from Halton Speak Out, an advocacy group for young people with disabilities. 

Representatives reviewed the facilities several times over a three-month period, acting as secret shoppers and gave marks on their experience.  

The group praised the accessibility and signage at the bistro, as well as the helpfulness of the staff. 

Jill Gill, Catering Assistant at The Orange Tree Bistro, said: “We’re delighted to win this award. Our staff are trained to be courteous and help people at all times, in addition our facilities have a focus on accommodating people with disabilities.” 

The Bright Sparks Kite Mark Project from Halton Speak Out supports children and young people with additional needs to check out venues and facilities in Halton for their peers. 

Two representatives visited the bistro last week to present Catering Assistant, Jill Gill with the award.  

The Orange Tree Bistro at Barkla Fields is open to the public and offers freshly made meals, snacks and a selection of hot and cold drinks. The bistro can be found on Ashley Green, off Dundalk Road, Widnes and is open Monday – Friday from 10am – 3pm.
