In typical Middleton Hall style, staff and residents of Middleton Court decided to view the redevelopment works in their area as an opportunity.
Whilst the main kitchen and communal areas are being upgraded, a temporary hot food cupboard and servery has been stationed in the Middleton Court lounge. This facility has been screened off, leaving a plain white hoarding (or as it turned out, a blank canvas).
The creative minds of Middleton Court lit up! With the festive season in full swing, they got cracking and the result is wonderful. Residents can now gather around the cosy fireplace. It’s not quite possible to roast chestnuts but the warm glow of the fire is undeniable.
The period of change will all be worth it. In the new year, everyone in Middleton Court will be able to enjoy a lovely new lounge and dining area. Middleton Hall will benefit from a new expanded kitchen facility that will fully support the ever expanding catering service.
