Ready meals created by Chatsworth chefs are delivered to St Oswald’s Hospital, Ashbourne. Chatsworth House Trust.

Instead of preparing meals for Chatsworth visitors, for the past few weeks chefs in the Carriage House Café kitchen have been cooking ready meals for the coronavirus vaccination staff at the county’s centres.

Hot food for the hard-working volunteers and staff includes Chatsworth favourites such as lasagne, macaroni cheese, cottage pie made with local beef, and mushroom and leek risotto, among others.

And Chatsworth’s delivery drivers have been dropping off meals at destinations including Chesterfield Royal Hospital and the town’s Winding Wheel theatre among the county’s 24 vaccination centres.
