Thorpe Wood Care Home in Peterborough provides residential and dementia care for the elderly.

It’s a new 50 bed care home which opened in early February 2019 and is located next to Thorpe Wood Golf Course and Ferry Meadows. It’s part of the Peterborough Care Group which has been a family run business since 1984.

CaterFix were delighted to install their brand-new kitchen which will help to produce the varied menus and diets at the new home. CaterFix previously installed the kitchen at The Maltings Care Home also located in Peterborough in 2014 which is just one of the reasons why Peterborough Care decided to use CaterFix for their new home. CaterFix are proud of their ongoing relationship with Peterborough Care for providing equipment but also service and maintenance. The company Stated, “We have had CaterFix equipment previously in our other homes and we wanted to extend this efficiency to Thorpe Wood Care Home as this was a proven combination of equipment and layout”.

Peterborough Care was founded by Shammy and David Marjara, Shammy who is a registered nurse had a real passion for working with older people in hospitals and the community. She and her husband David opened Broadleigh Nursing Home which started with just 8 beds. Today, Peterborough Care consists of four care homes totalling 177 beds with the fifth care home Thorpe Wood which offers a further 50 beds. Shammy and Dave were later joined by their two sons Amar and Ajay Marjara. As the company has grown, the ethos of person-centred care that was created by the founders Shammy and Dave has remained at the centre of the approach. They strive to achieve safe and effective care promoting choice, dignity, equality, independence and transparency. This is evident when visiting any of these beautiful care homes.

At CaterFix we have a team of inhouse CAD designers who worked with Peterborough Care to ensure the new kitchen would meet all their needs. We offer superb 3D visuals, detailed M&E and kitchen plan drawings, we also ensured they had all the technical details required to pursue their project quickly. Our team worked closely with Peterborough Care to make sure their new kitchen met all the needs of the staff who would be working there. We wanted the kitchen to flow nicely making cooking in there as efficient as possible. Philip advised “From planning to installation, it was all trouble free. Quality of service is our main priority and that is why we always choose CaterFix”.


The kitchen is fitted with full stainless-steel fabrication for all their work tops and storage. For cooking they have two Rational Combi ovens one 10 grid and one 6 grid, double fryers, two Lincat induction hobs, a Samsung microwave and a Lincat hot water boiler. But not forgetting all the refrigeration they have on site from the Fosters undercounter fridge at the heart of the kitchen to the multiple Fosters slimline upright fridges and freezers they have in the storage room. We couldn’t have done this kitchen without the right commercial equipment from our well-known UK suppliers. Ajay Marjara a director at Peterborough Care commented, “Once planning permission had been granted to build Thorpe Wood Care Home involving CaterFix to commission the kitchen was a no brainer.”

We just want to say a massive thank you to all our customers and suppliers who attended the Big Bash 2 last Monday, to make it another successful event. Foster, Lincat and Hobart were all here to talk to any customers who were interested in their products.

There was great food served all day by the chefs at Rational and we also had delicious fresh pizza courtesy of Ascentia, so everyone left feeling happy and full.

The staff here at CaterFix enjoyed meeting the new customers who attended and also seeing lots of familiar faces. We had some great orders on the day with deals and discounts for all.

Until next time…..

We are still very proud of the work we did to complete our first full kitchen project of 2019 at the 800 year old historic Benington Church which officially opened last week and we had the honour of attending ⛪️ With great support from Lincat, Hobart and other leading UK suppliers who we used to complete this kitchen to such a high standard. We don’t think there are many commercial kitchens that have beautiful stained-glass windows like these. As always great work by the Caterfix team to complete this job over Christmas to have the kitchen ready for an early January opening 💙

Two weeks today CaterFix will be attending the Business Booth Networking Event at the Peterborough Greyhounds.
