THE GRANGE GAZETTE
AUGUST EDITION 2017
Thank you to everyone for joining in the afternoon tea dance with the sounds on Glenn Miller and entertainment from Roland. We had a lovely time and Shirley has received requests for further events of this kind which she will organise and announce in future newsletters.
We are also planning a ‘Flower Festival’ at the Grange. It will be a themed event and we have received suggestions of ‘well known musicals’ and ‘all the fun of the fair’. Shirley would be grateful for your ideas and suggestions and is looking forward to residents making their own flower displays which can be view by family and friends throughout the Grange.
