Your amazing arts and crafts were a great success at the Erewash Museum Beach Event with items displayed throughout the building and in the courtyard. After receiving such a positive response from their visitors the museum requested an extension on the loan period and we were happy to oblige. Erewash Museum is a hub of activity and they estimate thousands of visitors have viewed your work with some members of the public asking if your items were for sale! Shirley and Karen are extremely proud of your achievements and we are hoping Karen will be able to fit the Grange into her busy schedule before Christmas to bring her particular magic to our ‘Have-a-Go’ Group.


We have recently enjoyed discussing recycling and how we recycled before it was popular. Our families taught us to ‘WASTE NOT WANT NOT’.

As a result we will be making reusable bags from preloved material to reduce plastic waste and Shirley would be grateful for donations of washed curtains, duvets and clothing which are suitable for a pattern size 18inch x 40inch.

Thank you for your continued support.


Over the coming weeks we are preparing a fundraising event for the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance which will be held on Thursday 17th October.

As part of the event we are hoping to hold a tombola and would be happy to receive donations of suitable items for the stall. Please see Shirley if you have any donations or would like to volunteer on the day. Thank you all.


This month we are happy to celebrate six birthdays with Ida on the 6th, Clive on the 7th, Alice on the 9th, Gwen on the 15th, Olive on the 19th and Hilda on the 21st. Alice celebrates a very special 104th birthday and both Olive and Hilda become 99 years young. I’m sure you will join everyone at the Grange in wishing them the best of days.


Our August quiz received a bumper response and we congratulate Ida, Dorothy, Miriam, Sheila, Hilda, Vera, Terry and Ernest for achieving tremendous marks. Well done everyone.


We welcome Laura Pidgeon and Sandra Gough to the care team. We hope you will be very happy at the Grange.
