JANUARY 2020 EDITION
Our sincere thanks for your support during the Christmas Fayre.
You helped to raise a wonderful £1142.25 for the Resident’s Fund to provide additional entertainment and activities.
We had a tremendous group of staff and volunteers who helped on the stalls, sold raffle tickets,
donated prizes and baked yummy cakes.
A big thank you to you all.
We hope you enjoyed a lovely Christmas and the entertainment in the run up to the big day.
We welcomed four separate choirs and two church visits during December and would like to thank them for donating their time to the Grange. We were particularly delighted by the visit from Long Eaton Brownies who sang around the Christmas tree.
After the busy Christmas period January is a quieter month. We have weekly entertainment and hope you will give a big Grange welcome to ‘Twice as Nice’ on their first visit. We also welcome the return of your favourite entertainers by popular request.
The Grange have registered for the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch takes place towards the end of the month and we hope you will join in counting any feathered visitors to our gardens.
We look forward to the year ahead and wish you a Happy New Year.
2019 QUIZ YEAR
Throughout the year we received a great response to our monthly quiz competitions. After a closely run contest we are proud to announce Terry as our Quiz Champion for 2019 and he is now the proud holder of our quiz cup. Congratulations Terry.
Thank you to everyone for your outstanding contributions and we hope you are looking forward to a new quiz year.
We are hoping the Grange calendar will arrive very shortly and will be displayed on the notice board in the main foyer.
