Meet our Activities Coordinator, Becca Huxtable

I have worked as an Activities Coordinator since 2017 here at Middletown. I find this role to be exciting, fun and challenging in a different way each day. I find when working in activities, you not only have to be a member of staff, but also a friend, a supportive and caring person, and help to bring the individuality out of every single person to give them the most meaningful experience you can. I’ll always have a smile or a joke to crack and I’m a little bit mad, which I think is a special skill required for the job.

Activities at Middletown Grange

We aim to provide a variety of activities that will both mentally and physically stimulate the people we support. Residents have a range of different needs and interests, and it is crucial that these are reflected in the activities available, so that each individual is able to participate to the best of their ability. We organise both group and individual social events that everyone is welcome to take part in; there is a weekly outing to local places of interest, including the garden centre and the local farms, parks and museums. In addition, we enjoy regular visits from entertainers and even exotic animals. We also host events such as 'Beach Day' that relatives and friends are encouraged to participate in. Getting involved in charities is a big part of our ethos, so events such as 'PJs for Pudsey' and pirate-themed days are regularly hosted to raise money for different foundations, including the Alzheimer’s Society.

Christmas Fête

Middletown hosted a Christmas Fête and raised £137 for Age UK with its raffle, tombola and donation-only bake sale. Residents also had a visit from Santa, who provided free photos in the grotto. Residents and families had lots of fun with mulled wine and mince pies on arrival, and browsed the lovely gifts that the County Scouts provided to help raise money for their trip to America.
