We are hoping Father Christmas will take time from his busy schedule to call in and see everyone on SATURDAY 1st DECEMBER from 10.30am
Father Christmas always looks forward to visiting the Grange and meeting your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He enjoys receiving their wish lists and the elves like to send a present for every little girl and boy. Please have a word with Shirley before the day so she can ensure the elves know you are coming. There will be milk and cookies for our visitors and an opportunity to decorate gingerbread people! Last year our wonderful kitchen staff supplied Father Christmas with extremely tasty supersonic carrots for all the reindeers back at his North Pole workshop. To thank the Grange a magical reindeer will be joining Father Christmas during his visit and will be able to meet everyone!
We look forward to seeing you all on the day
And finally … our amazing CHRISTMAS FAYRE will be held on SATURDAY 8TH DECEMBER 2-4pm.
