An eco-conscious retirement village has won two awards and is creating more jobs as part of a £9m expansion scheme.
Middleton Hall Retirement Village, near Darlington, has invested millions in its expansion plans, which include the Waterside development – zero-carbon retirement homes set beside a pond and wetland area designed to attract wildlife. A recruitment open evening will be held on April 29 from 5-7pm.
Middleton Hall was awarded a Better Health Gold Award, run by the Health Improvement Service at County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation. It also scooped the Contribution to the Environment 2014 category in the Best of Darlington Awards managed by the Darlington Partnership and by Darlington Borough Council.
