Self-isolation Sustenance

This page is a space for our independent residents to check out some Middleton-Hall-made entertainment. This will include exercise videos, craft suggestions, cooking tutorials, and games.

What’s happening?

Running the Extra Mile…

At Middleton Hall, we’re well aware that everyone who works here is incredible, but sometimes a Co-owner will go that little bit further, and we just have to talk about it.

Sarah Ratcliffe

Sarah Ratcliffe from Middleton Court has made the brave decision to run the Great North Run in September this year. She’s doing it to raise money for Brain Research UK, in memory of her Auntie.

“She always instilled in me to be kind to others, to have strength and to look to a hopeful future. This is her continued legacy.”

The Great North Run (for those who don’t know much about it) is a half marathon that stretches from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne to South Shields, and this is its 40th year. This is just over 13 miles (21km), which is an amazing goal to aim for, and a great thing to do for charity.

Please donate to Sarah’s JustGiving page – the link is below. Every pound counts, so forgo that bottle of wine and throw a few pounds in Sarah’s pot this week. There will also be a sponsorship sheet going up in the Co-owner’s break room. And don’t forget to wish her luck when September rolls around!

Open Day CANCELLED

Unfortunately, due to the developments in the Covid-19 outbreak in the United Kingdom, Middleton Hall have decided to cancel the Open Day scheduled for the 12th of March.

This is a precaution we are taking in order to protect our residents from any unnecessary outside contact, in line with us entering ‘Phase 2’ of our contingency plan. We do not wish to alarm anyone, as we do not currently have any reason to believe anyone in Middleton Hall is testing positive for the virus, but we would rather be proactive in our approach. A lot of our residents have vulnerable immune systems, and any steps we can take to protect them will be seriously considered.

‘Phase 2’ also includes restricted access from outside visitors in general unless absolutely necessary, so please ring Reception on 01325 332207 if you plan on coming to Middleton Hall for any reason over the next couple of weeks to check on the current recommendations.

Thank you for your understanding and your patience.
