The snow settled across the Middleton Hall estate this week creating some stunning views that many enjoyed whilst out and about in the grounds.
We’re delighted to have over 90% of our Co-owners vaccinated.
Zoe, one of our amazing carers, is proud to be vaccinated.
She said: “I hope the vaccine will enable us to relax restrictions further, such as no masks meaning our residents can see smiles again, and allow visitors giving our residents comfort and the family touch which they have sadly missed out on.
“I got the vaccine because it seemed to be the best way for us to move forward to some sort of ‘normal life’ again. It’s important to help keep us fit as well and hopefully stop us being really poorly should we get Covid.”
We’re looking at putting together a Virtual Choir to bring our community back together in lockdown.
The wonderful Gail Jones, who residents will recognise as one of our lovely reception team, has come up with the idea of bringing together residents, Co-owners & families to sing Do-Re-Mi from The Sound of Music. We’re looking for singers of all abilities, including those who just normally sing in the shower.
Don’t be put off by the technical side as we can help with all of that when the time comes.
If you’re interested please contact Gail on email@example.com over the next week to express an interest and find out more.
To celebrate Burns night our Middleton Oaks residents had a day of Scottish themed activities. Elaine from our Healthy Living team helped residents to organise everything from tartan cracker making to dressing up in their Scottish best. We’ve put together this gallery of pictures so you can see how much fun everyone had.
Waterside residents Ken and Christine have set up a safe way of borrowing books from the Middleton Hall library.
Email your choice of books from the catalogue below to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Reception if you prefer on 01325 332207.
Ken and Christine will then drop off the books on your doorstep for you to enjoy!
When you’ve finished reading it, email email@example.com or ring reception and pop your book on your doorstep for collection.
We’re always looking to expand our collection so let us know if you have any books you’d like to donate.The Library Catalogue
The grounds of Middleton Hall always look wonderfully scenic in the snow. Here are some snowy shots taken by Co-owners around and about the estate.
With many of our behind the scenes office colleagues working from home again due to the current lockdown we were also sent scenes from home office locations beyond the village. Here are some spectacular scenes from a wintery Barnard Castle.
The Middleton Hall estate is home to a wide range of different species of birds. The list below documents those spotted since 2010.
