​​​​​Grange Moor Community Association

Grange Moor Matters

“ABOUT US”

 

Grange Moor Community Association was formed in 2013 by a small number of like-minded residents who felt the need to establish a group to provide social and cultural activities for the people who call Grange Moor “Home”

 

The Association started with no funds and it became quickly obvious that fund raising would be a major priority to fund projects and activities that we wished to take on

 

The Grange Moor Community Association aims to promote and develop a community spirit across all residents and businesses of Grange Moor

 

The Community Association is a “not for profit” organisation and all money raised is used to fund projects for the benefit of everyone living and working in Grange Moor

Over the years we have developed our activities and objectives

 

We produce a quarterly newsletter which is distributed to around 450 homes in the village, with a similar number being distributed through other local organisations and local business

 

We also provide a monthly update on village news and activities via an e-mail to residents interested to learn about our activities and other issues affecting our village and asl send out items of interest or information to our residents

 

We have our own Face Book page, not to be confused with the Grange Moor Community page, on which we post information about our activities and other items of interest to residents

 

We have established a number of regular activities aimed at bringing people together and enjoying time with other each, though at the time of writing this update (October 2020) all our activities are suspended due the coronavirus pandemic and the restrictions imposed to slow down the spread of the virus.


As far as we know (October 2020) there have no recorded cases of covid-19 in the village

RESIDENTS LUNCH CLUB

 

Family Race Day Event

 

 

 

The Lunch Club was planned to provide a regular Lunch for residents to come together for a meal in one of our great local restaurants with food and drink in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere

 

 (We only managed one get together before the Lockdown in March 2020 but will be resuming this, probably sometime in 2021, when we are able to do so without putting any of our residents, or ourselves, at risk)

 

We also look at projects and activities to maintain the village, and invite residents to join us in these activities from time to time. Look out for notices of these activities

 

Fund raising is an important aspect of our work, as the money raised is used to fund projects which will improve and enhance village life and amenities, and with resident support this is important in allowing us to realise our income each year

 

We welcome suggestions from residents for activities or events that you think would be a useful addition to our offering

 

Working with our local Councillors we have also been able to tackle issues with the Local Authority which have affected our lives in Grange Moor

 

The Community Association has been on the first Tuesday of each month in The Grange Pub at 7.30 pm (we will resume this when we are able to do safely)

 

The Community Association is open to anyone living or working in the village.

 

New members welcome, we would really like to see a wider range of residents working with us to maintain our work, which is for the benefit of everyone living and working here
