2013 started off with over 80 people spending a pleasant afternoon playing Bridge at the Annual Bridge Tea event in The Grange’s spectacular ballroom. The players enjoyed sandwiches and cakes provided by The Grange Circle, with the added bonus of raising valuable funds for The Grange. The next Bridge event will be the very popular Bridge Masterclass with Andrew Robson OBE from The Times on 17th October, more details to follow.
New Day! From 9th April our popular Simply Scones Cafe, will run every Tuesday 2.00-3.30pm (instead of Thursdays). As before, please reserve your table on 01372 452608. Why not treat your friends? Relax over a cup of tea with a freshly made scone with clotted cream and homemade jam whilst enjoying views over the garden from our beautiful Victorian Conservatory.
We are delighted to announce that the Epsom Rotary Club has generously donated a house in Epsom to The Grange enabling us to provide housing for people living in the Epsom area whilst being supported by The Grange. Work is underway to make some slight adaptations to the property and it is hoped that it will be ready for occupation in the Autumn.
